Trade Careers for Women videos

October 1, 2021

At the moment, only 2.6% of tradespeople are women but over 80% of the employers who took the Trade Careers survey are keen to employ women. That’s a BIG opportunity!

Even better — if you’re ready to skill up, there’s free trades training available until December 2022 via the government’s Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund.

Over 2000 women completed the Trade Careers survey. Here’s what they wanted to know about a career in the trades:

  • How do I get a ‘foot in the door’?
  • What is a worksite is really like?
  • Which of my skills are transferable to the trades?
  • How do I find out which trade is best for me?
  • What’s the likelihood of having a good supportive boss?
