An Opportunity for women to Get Ahead… Get a Trade!

Did you know the current participation rate of female apprentices in non-traditional trade occupations is just 8%?

There are many trades facing a shortage of qualified trades people either right now or predicted to be in the next 5 years… and now is the time for women to Get Ahead and Get a Trade!

At Mas National we are passionate about supporting women in trades.

Benefits to a qualified trade

The trade business is one of the highest growth industries in Australia. Skilled trade employees are in high demand as employers frequently find it tough to find qualified tradespersons.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Stable employment
  • Great pay
  • Many options for career progression
  • Nationally recognised qualifications

Myths of Trades

Common Myths Busted

  • Trades are just for the guys – you don’t need to be a body builder to work in a trade! Working safely and within your limits applies to everyone!
  • You need to be under 21 to get a trade – age is only a number! Mature age apprentices bring great life experience and value.
  • Employers don’t hire women in trades – Many employers in trade occupations are increasingly seeing the value and balance women bring to a workplace.

There are many more myths and questions about a trade career which we get every day, that’s why Mas National have a dedicated women in trades team.
