People needed in building industry
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.
