Auckland commercial and residential maintenance company, Fixed For You Ltd, has an abundance of work lined up, and owner Brad Williams is currently on the hunt for two carpentry apprentices to join his team.
“Some experience would be good, but we’re looking for people with the right attitude,” Mr Williams says.
“If they’re a team player and they’re willing to learn, they can be trained,” he says.
Mr Williams says the construction industry has real potential, and encourages young people to get involved.
“New Zealand has a lot of buildings that need ongoing maintenance. And with new earthquake standards for commercial buildings, there’s going to be guaranteed work for years to come,” he says.
