Nathan gets building apprenticeship

 

Check you out Nathan Tuvae! Nathan was referred to Ara through a training provider he was previously with. Nathan lives in South Auckland but was traveling to Henderson each day for work (approx. 50 mins). He'd been employed for four months as a carpenter but was having trouble with his employer - he hadn't been paid for a few weeks. Ara interviewed Nathan and referred him to a sub-contractor at the airport who employed him in December 2015 and linked him to an apprenticeship.

Ara has organised Nathan's Site Safe and Elevated Work Platform training. We've helped him out with his drivers license lessons, preparing him for his test - which he passed! We're so happy to be able to connect awesome local people like Nathan to opportunities here at the airport and support him throughout his career (and it only takes him 15 mins to get to work now).
