Peo­ple needed in build­ing in­dus­try

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Peo­ple con­sid­er­ing a ca­reer in con­struc­tion are be­ing in­vited to at­tend an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion in Auck­land.

The Build­ing and Con­struc­tion In­dus­try Train­ing Or­gan­i­sa­tion (BCITO) is hold­ing an in­for­ma­tion af­ter­noon for school leavers, par­ents, teach­ers and any­one else in­ter­ested in the trades.

Pro­fes­sional BCITO train­ing ad­vis­ers will be speak­ing about the in­dus­try and lu­cra­tive ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties on the hori­zon.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Ruma Karaitiana says the con­struc­tion in­dus­try needs ‘‘as many peo­ple as it can get right now’’.

‘‘Build­ing work in Christchurch and Auck­land is really kick­ing off and we ex­pect this de­mand will stay for quite some time.’’

New BCITO ap­pren­tices will also be given a chance to take ad­van­tage of government sub­si­dies.

The sub­sidy is $2000 for pri­or­ity con­struc­tion trades, to be used on tools and other train­ingre­lated ex­penses.
