FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • HOW DO I KNOW IF THE APPRENTICESHIP OR TRAINEESHIP IS RIGHT FOR ME?

    It’s often hard to know if you will enjoy or succeed in your apprenticeship or traineeship before you commence.
    Although it can be a very rewarding industry, there is a lot more to these apprenticeships and traineeships than meets the eye. We recommend you take some time to learn a little more about these trade specialisations on our website. Find out more about the trades on offer here

  • WHAT DO I NEED TO APPLY?

    You will need a cover letter and a resume highlighting your interests in the chosen trade and the relevant skills you will bring to your apprenticeship/traineeship.
    A cover letter is your opportunity to tell us:

    • a little bit about you,
    • why you want the apprenticeship/traineeship, and
    • what makes you right for this role.

     

    Tell us about what interests you, what you do in the local community and why it will make you a great apprentice or trainee for BMC.

    Think of your resume as a catalogue of your skills and experience. We’d like to see your school and subjects listed along with your grades and any pre-vocational certificates you have completed, plus any full-time or part-time work.

    Make sure you include any work experience or volunteer work where you may have had the opportunity to be part of a team. And don’t forget to list any clubs or groups you are actively involved in.

    You will need to include two (2) referees and their contact details in your resume. It’s a good idea to have your referees in mind and start talking to them about providing a reference if you are successful in moving forward with your application.

    A great referee is someone who knows your skills and strengths, has managed or mentored you and can tell us about what will make you a great apprentice or trainee. They might be a teacher at school, a manager at work or a coach of a sports team you play for.

  • CAN I APPLY FOR MULTIPLE ROLES?

    Yes, you certainly can. To be considered for multiple roles you must apply for each position separately. Each trade is very different and requires different strengths and interests. We suggest you develop a tailored cover letter for each role you are applying for highlighting your strengths in the different apprenticeships and traineeships on offer.
