PDQ Welcomes New Recruits

June 6, 2017

As the tradie crisis looms in Queensland, PDQ are working to employ more school based apprentices and trainees, inducting three new recruits – Harrison McLean, Jac Gardiner and Nick Duffy last week!

“Apprentices and trainees represent just 2.7 per cent of the total workforce, the lowest in a decade” said Qld Chamber of Commerce & Industry GM of Advocacy, Kate Whittle. This figure is alarming, considering that this is the next generation of school leavers that will ultimately shape our countries necessary infrastructure. Paynter Dixon Queensland (PDQ) have initiated a school based program in which we hope inspires others to follow.
Students completing this traineeship need to achieve a minimum of 375 hours paid work within a school calendar year and on completion, all participants will be awarded a Certificate II in Civil Construction. This pathway will open doors and opportunities for the next group of young leaders at PDQ and we look forward to guiding and mentoring their fresh and motivated minds!
