Construction companies all over Australia have banded together in order to lauch a new initiative to attract more young people into the construction industry.
The “build your career” campaign aims at targeting engagement within state education, career advisors and other school association to boost the awareness of career opportunities.
“A career in construction can be professionally and financially rewarding and the industry needs to step up and say that loudly and proudly if we want to avoid future workforce and skills shortages. “ says David Saxelby President of The Australian Constructors Association.
The ACA has said that its members will engage with the school departments in order to raise said awareness.
“To help students, parents and career advisers with career choices, we have to provide clear, coordinated and easily accessible information. “ said Saxelby.
