Trades - Engineering and Automotive

Automotive engineering image.

If you’re good with your hands, you like using tools and you enjoy making or fixing things, trades is a good area to get into and it offers great career opportunities. Demand for skilled tradespeople is high with the Christchurch rebuild in full swing and a significant nationwide housing shortage to address. One of the great things about becoming skilled in a trade is that you can, with experience, become your own boss. By equipping yourself with some business skills you can be self-employed or create a business that employs other tradespeople.
