PAC team out and about
In late October, the Placemakers Apprentice Programme (PAC) team attended PlaceMakers Silverdale’s trade breakfast, where they shared a stand with the BCITO and chatted to apprentices and builders about PAC
A few welcome freebies were handed out, along with flyers about the apprentice programme. There was a great response from builders and apprentices alike.
“It was great to see some PAC members in attendance, including one who did the GIB factory tour visit earlier this year,” says Trade Engagement Manager Andrea Albertyn. “One apprentice even lined up a job interview with a builder, which is a fantastic result!”
The event was organised by Trade Sales Manager Rich Knowles and supported by suppliers including GIB, Paslode, JSC Timber, Ramset and Simpson Strong Tie. Those in attendance – over 100 tradies – were treated to a hearty BBQ breakfast by the branch staff, along with giveaways and special offers from the suppliers.
The PAC team will be popping up at a couple of other trade breakfasts around the country – keep an eye on the Facebook page for notifications www.facebook.com/pac.placemakers
