Our mission

The construction industry needs confident, capable and motivated professionals. 

Through on-the-job training and regular guidance we're building a skilled workforce in which talented people can excel. 

Alongside our industry employers, we create futures for dedicated tradies. We help them develop successful careers and become valuable contributors in New Zealand's building and construction industry. 

We honour and uphold Te Tiriti o Waitangi in all we do.

BCITO. We’re building people.  

Work at BCITO

We are a friendly team and aim to create an environment that is open and honest where people feel valued and also have some fun. We understand the future prosperity and ongoing success of BCITO is linked directly to the performance, capability and wellbeing of our people.

What's most important to us is that people grow personally from their experiences as part of our team.
