Australian Apprenticeships

Australian apprenticeships and jobs for apprentices can be wide and varied – but which one is for you?

There’s a lot to choose from and really and it all depends on what you’re looking for and where’d you’d like to be, once the apprenticeship is complete.

One way of doing this is to determine the kind of person you are and then find an apprenticeship that would be most suited, to ‘who you are’.

Here are a few quick questions you can ask yourself to see what kind of apprenticeship may best suit you.

Are you…

… a hands-on sort of person?

Would you…

… describe yourself as a physical, outdoor type?

Can you…

… be a team player – but don’t mind a bit of independence too?

Do you…

… take pride in your work – and get great satisfaction in being able to see the end result?

If you answered YES to some – or all of these questions then… maybe you should consider an Australian apprenticeship in bricklaying.

Australian Apprenticeship Wages

Of all the Australian apprenticeships, or jobs for apprentices, bricklaying apprenticeships tend to be the most overlooked. Why?

Well (besides the fact you don’t see many ‘pretty-boy’ brickies on tellie!) people don’t realise brickies have it just as good – if not better, than many of the other Australian apprenticeships on offer.

Apprentice wages in the bricklaying industry are on par with other trade industry apprenticeships – such as carpentry apprenticeships, electrical apprenticeships, plumbing apprenticeships and mechanic apprenticeships.

And when you weigh up the odds, you’ll see earning apprenticeship wages with other trades won’t necessarily offer you a job at the end of the day. That’s because these ‘apprentice-competitive’ industries may not always have enough work for all the apprentices in their industry coming through.

However, with the bricklaying industry, demand easily outweighs supply – which means you’re chance of being employed is going to be high – PLUS you’ll have the ‘independent freedom’ to pick and choose who you work for – and which bricklaying jobs you do. Pretty good odds to have in your favour!

Australian Apprenticeships – with a difference

Best of all, a bricklaying apprenticeship (and career) is fairly unique in that you are actually measured on the ‘visible effort’ you’ve put in.

How often do you look at an awesomely built building or house and say “Gee that’s some mighty fine wiring” or ‘nice pipes’ or “check out that great plank work”. (Well okay so maybe that’s taking the mickey a little bit, but you get the picture). When people see a great structure and comment on it; it’s what’s visible to them, that they notice the most. And what they are admiring the most, is usually the work of a talented bricklayer.

…Now not many other trades can boast that. Trade professions like carpentry, electrical, or plumbing – on the majority of occasions, tend to have their work ‘hidden on the inside’ of a project and for the most part, unseen to the average person.

But as a bricklayer, your work is ‘hands-on’ and generally on display for the world to see – which means you and anyone else, can witness and admire the incredible work you’ve done!
