Women in Construction

As an integrated business with a diverse range of services, we regularly seek talented team members to join us in continuing to forge Daracon’s industry reputation. 

As one of NSW’s leading civil engineering contractors, joining the Daracon team is not just a job, it’s a highly rewarding career. Daracon Group provide opportunities in a range of disciplines, including:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Surveying
  • Plant Operation
  • Labouring
  • Quarrying
  • Rail
  • Mining and Coal Handling
  • Transport
  • Landscaping

Daracon is a family-owned company; small enough for everyone to know they are treated like an individual and an important part of the business but also large enough to explore genuine career progression within the many varying divisions of the Daracon Group.

50 by 50 Campaign

In line with our other Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, Daracon has signed on to support Civil Contractors Federation NSW’s ‘50 by 50’ campaign.
