Life in the construction industry

Tradie life is all about building your ultimate lifestyle, working hard with your mates and creating things that you are proud of.

There'll be early starts and a lot of mucking in. But for those who put in the hard yards, you'll earn good money as a qualified professional and have the opportunity to progress beyond the tools into supervision or management.
