Meet Qld ABBTF Team, Face to Face this Expo Season

Brian Munns @ Careers Expo 15 wth CaptionIt’s that time of the year, May and June not only see’s the end of autumn and the beginning of winter, it also heralds the start of a very busy period for the ABBTF Qld team.  It’s known as Expo Season to us. Most people don’t know that ABBTF and our partners conduct expos displays from Weipa in the North West Cape, all the way down to Lismore in northern New South Wales.

This is a massive area to cover and where we can ABBTF aims to conduct a “Try-a-Trade” with bricks and mortar, giving you a hands-on taste of bricklaying.  However, due to size of the various venues and the logistics this is not always possible.
Nevertheless, our team is on hand to give great advice and information on not only local opportunities but state and national vacancies as well.  If you are looking to get accurate advice on where your career could lead and the many doors an Apprenticeship in Bricklaying can open, come along to your local career expos and have a chat to our experienced and friendly team. We’re very pleased to answer other questions like apprenticeship wage rates, pre-apprenticeship training, finding an employer, matching the right boss with you, but you can also get some background info here at the website.

We also encourage those who are looking to get back into the industry to drop by and have a chat about how we can assist in getting a trowel back in your hand.

Our team are dedicated to giving good advice and steering candidates down the right pathway to a successful career in the Brick and Blocklaying industry and beyond, if that’s for you.

This year ABBTF Expo’s will also have information on courses it will be running in some regions and you can get valuable information about these and other opportunities when you drop by. So come and and say hi and if you want to know when we’ll be in your area just email us at for your local event information.
