Being placed with Higgins is a great opportunity for me. I can't believe I was chosen out of all the applicants in the beginning, and shortlisted to be in the top 20, and then handpicked by Higgins after making it to the top 10. It really is a great honour and a blessing
Earl was placed with Higgins which is part of the Fletcher family. Earl decided construction was a solid industry to get into, seeing all the growth in Auckland.
Hard Hat Challenge
Not ONE of our partners or #BuildAKL winners managed to get the hard hat on their head! Can any of you do it??
BuildAKL would like to wish all of the awesome #BuildAKL competition winners the very best of luck on the first day of their 4 week paid work experience!
#TBT Throwback to last week when the #BuildAKL winners enjoyed a free and tasty team lunch, were kitted out in their PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), had their 2nd drug screening, and signed their contracts at AWF!
"It was pretty fast! We can nail 250m of kerbing in one day." Earl and DJ are working on a Higgins project, placing new kerbs on roads around Auckland. Watch the video to see how it's done!
Falling asleep on the job... #NotYourFinestHour, DJ? "The low of my week was probably when I was so excited for traffic I couldn't get much sleep the night before and I fell asleep at work 😩😩" Fletcher Building Careers is just too exciting!
Look at how HAPPY they are! That's because they're having the time of their lives learning on the job with #Higgins. That could be YOU! Find out how by clicking on the link below. #Fletcher Building Careers #BuildAKL.
Earl's enthusiasm on the runway of Auckland's Airport was almost enough to power the engines of that Air NZ Airbus A380! What an opportunity! @Fletchers #Higgins #GrabThatOpportunity
