Apprentice - Alexandra

Job Description

About Foleys

Servicing our communities since 1934, we are a well-established plumbing, drainage, gas-fitting, electrical and mechanical business with over 190 staff across our nine South Island locations.
We are proud to have a staff who love working for us, as shown by outstanding results in our employee survey. At Foleys you will be part of a close knit, family-orientated team where good pay, career development, and support are available to you.
Health and safety and family values are at the foundation of what we do.

About the role

Supported by your Alexandra co-workers, manager, and the wider company, you will join our team permanently and be trained to be a well-rounded trades person. For four years you will learn about all the different aspects of plumbing and drainage – service, new builds, commercial plumbing etc., and if possible we would like you to also do an extra year to get your gas-fitting ticket too!
You will start off helping our plumbers with their tasks, doing what needs to be done and learning as you go. Over the years of your apprenticeship you will increasingly become more skilled, more responsible, and more independent, finally becoming a confident trades person in your own company van!

About you
You:
• Have NCEA minimum level 1 (maths and technical subjects preferred)
• Are experienced in, or have a demonstrated interest in hands-on / workshop activities
• Are willing to commit to both the study and work required to successfully complete your apprenticeship qualification
• Have a clean driver’s license and the ability to drive a manual vehicle (or a willingness to learn)
• Have the fitness for this sometimes physical role
• Are a NZ citizen, resident, or have a valid NZ work visa

We are an equal employment opportunities employer.
If this great opportunity sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!
