Construction Skills Shortage News – Bricklayers In Demand

The construction industry across Australia is booming and as a result there is a shortage of bricklayers. While some young people have avoided the industry  because they view the job as a physically demanding one and because they didn’t think there were many jobs, there are now opportunities in most states for these workers.

According to The Department of Employment there is a shortage of construction trade workers and in particular bricklayers in most states.

Occupation reports for each state compiled by the department indicate that bricklayers weren’t in high demand in 2013, but since 2014 onwards there is a nationwide shortage.

Steven Asnicar is regarded as a leader across many fields of industry. In particular, his specialisation across the health, infrastructure, construction, resource and utility sectors has seen him successfully change the dynamics of these industries through the introduction of new strategic, marketing, training and technical frameworks. Steven works closely with industry peak bodies such as Safework Australia, Australian Logistics Council, National Advisory for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (NATESE) and the Council of Australian Governments in the development of new delivery standards and industry specific programs.
