A recent appeal from the peak industry body, The Housing Industry Association (HIA), highlighted a looming skills shortage in the construction sector.

The HIA said further support was needed to help find construction industry talent from overseas.

According to The HIA’s Harley Dale, it is being made harder to qualify to bring in skilled labour from overseas, calling for a separate contractor visa that could be used to bring workers into Australia that are in short supply.

Dale said many small businesses involved in home building are already battling to recruit and train tradies and its become more expensive.

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.
