The ABN Group employs more apprentices than any other builder in Australia (more than 900 since 2004). To us, an apprentice is a lot more than just someone learning the ropes. You’re the future of the building game — the future of our business.

That’s more than hot air too! Our directors, Dale Alcock and Garry Brown-Neaves, were apprentice bricklayers here in WA themselves, and many of our most successful employees started out as apprentices too. They put in the hard yards to become schedulers, estimators, construction managers, senior managers, and so on.

So while you’re working hard to achieve your career goals, we’re working hard to give you the best training, the best conditions and the best opportunities. Just as importantly, you get our loyalty... Because as an employer of top young trades people, we want you with us for the long haul.

Take our registered WA training organisation, ABN Training.

Or the way we’ve spearheaded numerous building apprentice reforms. (Just two reasons we’ve been an award-winner in the training of 'top' young tradespeople.) Of course, you’ll come away with more than just the trade you learn. The ABN Group offers a small business course towards the end of your building and construction apprenticeship to aid you with the skills and knowledge of how to run your own business.

Once you’ve completed your building apprenticeship, you’ll have the opportunity to work as a sub-contractor with our group of companies. You may even get the opportunity to work for us as a scheduler or supervisor, or in a variety of other building and construction roles.

In short, if you’re passionate about making it in the building and construction industry, ABN will help you get there.
