Wednesday 29 November 2017
BMA has offered 42 people across Central Queensland the option to take up an apprenticeship in the new year.
The new apprentices will work as electricians, mechanics, diesel fitters, auto-electricians and boilermakers.
Of the 42 people being offered apprenticeships, 16 are from Moranbah, seven from Blackwater, Dysart, and the Mackay area, and a further five from Central and North Queensland.
BMA Asset President Rag Udd, says they have increased the number of apprenticeships they have offered in the last five years.
"We want our workforce to reflect the communities in which we operate, so it's pleasing to be again able to build on that with our diverse apprenticeship intake next year,” he said.
"We see these apprentices as the future of our business, and for us to continue being an important part of the Central Queensland community, we need to support it.”
Mature age apprentices have already received their offers to join BMA, while those still at school will receive their letters once the school year officially ends.
Induction and training will begin in January.
