Apprentice Recruitment Made Easy with Master Builders

Recruiting and training apprentices is a big responsibility that comes with rewards. It takes time, effort and patience to pass your skills on to the next generation. With a shortage of skilled tradespeople, the industry will continue to struggle. You can be part of the solution by hosting an apprentice.

During his 20 years of managing his business, builder Gregory Bush of House to Home Constructions has hired a few apprentices. “You need apprentices who come ready to learn and with some understanding of what a building site is like. On top of simply finding the right candidate for your business, there’s a lot of administration involved in taking on an apprentice. Everything from health and safety to superannuation, holiday pay and all the rest. And if I am honest, administration is not my favourite part of the job,” says Gregory.

“I work with Master Builders for all my apprenticeship needs. They make the process as simple as possible and take a lot of the details off my hands. And on top of that, the apprentices arrive pre-screened and work ready.”

House to Home Constructions is an approved Master Builders Apprenticeship Services Host Employer and a member of the Master Builders Association of NSW. House to Home Constructions is also the recipient of Master Builders awards for residential construction.

“Using Master Builders Apprenticeship Services has been a game-changer for me and my business,” Gregory claims. “Through Master Builders, I get a valuable pair of hands for my business. And with so much of the administration taken care of for me, I get more time on the job, helping to train and mentor Carpentry apprentices onsite.”

When you engage a Master Builders Apprentice the pre-screening and recruitment are all done for you. Master Builders sends you a job-ready candidate with the necessary health and safety training. Both the apprentice and host employer are well supported by a dedicated Field Officer throughout the apprenticeship. The Master Builders team of experts will take care of:

  • Payroll
