Yea. It's tough like that. If you're ever over BOP ways sing out. Plenty of opportunities for those wishing to better themselves. Plenty.
Also two jobs came up today, one in Timaru another in Auckland for bum-boy apprenticeships in those strands your talking about.
Sounds like you have the A and the A. Stick to your guns and you'll be fine.
Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts
I used to work for century resources, who was your boss? pm if you like
applied for a job similar to yours at a local firm, actually got told i was over qualified for what they wanted... ie someone young with prospects wouldnt benefit from what basically a machine operators role.
what sort of things are you offering to prospective candidates?
+1 for trying to get an apprentice, do something for your industry. Call ATNZ they will be happy to help, and do the recruitment and training processes for you.
Youll probably never get an employee with the exact skill set your after. Alot of companies take on apprentices because they are in a similar position and they can 'mould' an apprentice into what fits the companies needs
This position has been filled. We have some pretty cool stuff in the pipeline so keep tuned in :-)
Now go hire an apprentice. Right now. My new apprenti would make your head spin @DPT, he does your shit for fun making his own cnc type machines
Entertaining thread this one. Any company that doesn't have people coming through are straight out silly, when welding there was always someone I had my eye on for training and the same goes for rabbiting. It's actually waaaay harder to find someone for rabbiting than welding/engineering as they have to hit the ground running more so than the standard trades.
