We know that one of the major constraints to running and growing a construction business is attracting and retaining skilled workers. The MBA is working with the ACT Government on a range of initiatives to help address this issue. Some of the ways we are working on this issue include:
The ACT Government has produced a digital tool kit to help employers attract workers to the ACT. The tool kit can be found here.
The MBA will also be running our own programs to attract people, especially tradespeople, to the building industry through our own construction careers evenings. We are holding an initial session for interested carpentry apprentices and employers on 21 July (link here) and will be running further sessions later this year for other trades.
