"We are always looking for quality personnel - Employees or Contractors"

East Coast Diesel Service was established in late 2005 to service the Bowen Basin mining industry as well as the wider Whitsunday community. Over the past 15 years we have grown from a single contractor to a team of over 40 skilled tradespeople. This growth has been due to the 'can do' attitude of management and staff with the vision that no maintenance task is beyond our capabilities.

We strongly believe that a business is only as good as its staff. With this in mind, we have in place a training and skilling program which encourages staff to further themselves by means of experience and training. Staff welcome these opportunities as they feel their future is secure. We pride ourselves on a low staff turnover, which in turn ensures our clients consistent support.

We are continually looking for quality personnel who have the same values as our team. We offer employment on a casual, fixed term, full time or independent contract basis. Whether you are a worker on wages or a contractor working for your own company, we value and treat everyone the same. Contractors get paid on the same payment cycle as employees which is every 2 weeks. If you are a contractor looking for extra work, reach out today.
