Re-invent Your Career in Bricklaying
The expo ran over two days, with over 1,000 jobs offered through 90 stands, and was attended by more than 5,200 people ranging from mid-20’s to early 40’s.
The level of interest at the careers expo was more than expected with many applicants keen to pursue bricklaying as a career change.
ABBTF has provided advice and with the benefit of resumes, arranged trials with bricklayers, which we expect will lead to a number of sign-ups as apprentice bricklayers.
Employers are also aware of the benefits of mature apprentices who have a good work ethic, learn quickly and fit well into the bricklaying team environment.
ABBTF offer a $1,000 mature age incentive to employers in addition to the $5,000 Brickstart subsidy and bonus, additional incentives are also available from the Federal Government.
