James Eyre – The Face of the ABBTF Summer Campaigns

ABBTF bricklaying promotional campaigns over the summer have featured James Eyre, a fresh-faced South Australian apprentice. The photo of James preparing to construct a brick arch using a template has captured a lot of attention from many young people around the country.

We know that behind those cheeky good looks is a talented, hardworking apprentice who is loving the outdoors and being part of a team constructing great brick work. James’ friendly face and love of the trade has drawn many young people to our promotion to consider a career in construction via bricklaying.


The Young Wise Owl Should Buy a Trowel

We’ve banged on a bit about trowel time lately and how a poor apprentice will leave the excellent trade of bricklaying simply because his boss is not giving him time on a trowel. But is it always the boss’s fault?

If you want to get more trowel time at work, you’ll need to take the bull by the horn, so to speak.


Bricklaying – A Smart Choice for a New Career or First Start

The latest national unemployment rate of 6.4% is the highest for more than 12 years with some industries shedding jobs at a time when there are more school leavers entering the job market.

The growing unemployment rate is making people re-think their career choices and they are turning to trades in the construction industry as an alternative.

Bricklaying offers a great opportunity for immediate work and it comes with training to learn the skills of the trade.
