Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

Mas­ter Builders is urg­ing the Pil­bara com­mu­nity to get young peo­ple in­volved in the build­ing in­dus­try dur­ing the eco­nomic down­turn.

Mas­ter Builders di­rec­tor Michael McLean is call­ing for busi­nesses and em­ploy­ers to as­sist school leavers, ap­pren­tices and young trades­men with work ex­pe­ri­ence or job op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“WA has just come off an ex­tra­or­di­nary pe­riod of high con­struc­tion ac­tiv­ity thanks to the min­ing sec­tor,” he said.

“How­ever, with many of th­ese projects now com­ing to an end, new jobs are in short sup­ply.”

The Pil­bara In­sti­tute of­fers a range of ap­pren­tice­ships and trainee­ships in the field of con­struc­tion, en­gi­neer­ing and car­pen­try.
