Investing in young people today, particularly through Apprenticeships, will ensure a strong workforce of the future. This is something highly valued by Productivity Force and Oriel Building Services and is evidenced through their strong partnership that has continued to grow since 2018.
Oriel Building Services specialises in commercial carpentry, heritage, and hoarding works. They have gained a reputation in the NSW Building Industry for high quality workmanship and timely completion of projects. They have seen first-hand the skill shortages within the construction industry and reached out to Productivity Force in hope of becoming part of the solution.
“At Oriel, we are committed to developing carpenters of the future. The quality of Apprentices that we receive from Productivity Force is outstanding and it makes it so much easier for us to really focus on teaching quality, precision and a high standard of carpentry.” – Greg O’Connor, Owner, Oriel Building Services
Productivity Force offers an apprentice-hire model like no other. One of the key features of the model is the 8-weeks of intense training that their apprentices undertake with Productivity Bootcamp prior to starting employment.
“Bootcamp was awesome. It shows you what to do before you even get to a site. It’s so good to be able to just get the right tools for the Tradesmen from the start.” – Matt, 2nd year Carpentry Apprentice, Productivity Force/Oriel Building Services
Apprentices like Matt have had the opportunity to work on major projects such as the Barangaroo Foreshore Deck and Wynyard’s heritage listed Transport House in Sydney’s CBD.
