The right strengths for the trades

BCITO NZ

It takes the right person with the right attitude to succeed in the trades. Someone with grit, determination and endurance. These are the kinds of strengths that women have and that the industry needs.

Like Sofie Graf-Russell from D&R Decorating Ltd in Queenstown who after four years in hospitality, changed to a career in the trades finally felt “at the place I’m meant to be.”

If you’re a woman interested in the trades, read how local women are doing it or register for The BCITO & Mitre 10 Building Women Night to meet them and employers in person.
