We know women have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and that upcoming government spend has been allocated to training in apprenticeships, construction and infrastructure development as part of Northland’s economic recovery. We also know young women are not always aware of the great careers to be had in infrastructure, building, project management, engineering and manufacturing. So come along and hear from the women who are making it real!
From Northland Women In Infrastructure, Fiona Bycroft, Northland Regional Manager for McKay and Arden Hermans, Site Engineer from Fulton Hogan, will be speaking as well as Aidan Bryers, Project Manager for CANAM and Dharia Ward, Health and Safety Manager from Earthworx Rural and Civil Ltd. They'll share a little of their stories and what it's like to be working their sector.
Held at NorthTec’s Future Trades Campus, you’ll be able to tour the purpose-built workshops for construction, machining, health and safety, auto, mechanical and electrical engineering. Check out the agriculture and horticulture programmes too! Try your hand at the tools, observe a Health and Safety demonstration and talk to our top tutors.
NorthTec has 27 fees-free programmes in industry!
NOTE: Please make sure you wear COVERED SHOES to the event.
