Been a while between posts but... we are hiring!!!

1st Year Apprentice Carpenter AND
2nd or 3rd Year Apprentice Carpenter

GVH Constructions specialises in constructions services including residential renovations & strata maintenance, predominately servicing the lower-north shore, inner east & surrounding area. We are currently recruiting for 2 roles including a first-year apprentice as well as a second or third year apprentice.  We are looking for applicants that are seeking a long-term career in the construction industry.
The successful candidate will learn all aspects of carpentry whilst completing their study with TAFE (preferably Meadowbank or Northern Beaches Campus) & receiving a nationally recognised qualification Certificate 3 in Construction Carpentry upon completion.
So, all your friends are off to uni.  Fear not!  We understand that university isn’t for everyone & it wasn’t for us.  The following successful business people never went to uni, Sir Richard Branson, Steve Jobs and American celebrity chef Rachael Ray.  One career pathway after completion of the apprenticeship is an option to continue study with TAFE or privately for a Certificate 4 in Construction and then apply for your builder’s license so that you can start your own company.  Whether your goal is to run a company or just be a very good skilled tradesman we are happy to support you no matter what your construction career goal is.  

GVH Constructions has been established for 20 years & is a family business who have a small team of currently 4 long term employees.  GVH Constructions have successfully trained 2 other apprentices during this time and helped a very skilled carpenter who has been working in the industry for over 15 years to also receive a Certificate 3 in Construction Carpentry.  We have a full WH&S system and are a member of the NSW Master Builders Association.  Having a good friendly team is our priority.
The suitable applicant will be very reliable, have lots of common sense, be self-motivated with the ability to carry out physically demanding work. The position is full time with award wage as well as penalty rates, allowances and superannuation.

·      Safety induction card
·      Australian driver’s license
Key characteristics needed for this position include:
·       Strong work ethic
·       Willingness to learn
·        Basic tools a plus
·        Excellent communication & common sense
