Did you know?

Future Skills Academy

Did you know that there are over 22,000 building consents processed by Auckland Council each year?
These require 160,000 inspections to be carried out by building control officers.

Being a building inspector or a consent processing officer is a rewarding and challenging career. As a building inspector, there is variety in your days and you spend time on the road visiting building sites to monitor progress and interacting with many people in the industry. Jeff Fahrensohn, Inspections Manager from Auckland Council came to Future Skills Academy Manukau Campus recently to talk about Auckland’s commercial and residential building boom and the opportunities it provides to Building Control Officers.

Currently, there are many developments happening in Auckland and Building Inspectors and Consent Processing Officers are in high demand with attractive salaries working for Council or in the private sector starting from $70,000 pa. Auckland Council Building Control has 800 staff. Auckland Council projections are that they need to recruit at least 50 staff with a recognised qualification in Building Control each year.

The New Zealand Diploma in Building Surveying, Level 6 is Auckland Council’s preferred qualification for employment as a Building Control Officer. Call or visit our website to find out more!

Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.

Strawberry Globbler Help

Mubashir from Mount Roskill

Something creepy has been gobbling up my strawberries when I leave them to ripen. What could it be? I have lavishly sprinkled slug and snail bait around but no stopping. There is enough grains for the birds to feed from as well 🤔. I think whoever that is, is more deserving than me as per nature 😀 as the poor thing can't walk to the supermarket to buy few!
