Congratulations to Ashley, a member of our Construction team since 2014, who has now completed his building apprenticeship and achieved a Certificate III in Carpentry!

Ashley moved from Coconut Island in the Torres Strait to Cairns to find employment with the ultimate goal of obtaining a building apprenticeship.

Upon graduating, Ashley said “As a little boy, I knew I wanted to become a carpenter as my older cousins and uncles had already made a career from this profession”.

He and his family are so happy and proud that he has completed his apprenticeship.

Ashley is now looking forward to undertaking a Certificate IV course, which will put him on the path to achieve his new goal -obtaining a management position at Bama.

We have no doubt that Ashley will continue to work hard and achieve all of his goals!
