EUROA carpentry apprentice, John Mason was named the Master Builders North East Section Apprentice of the Year at Raffety’s restaurant in Benalla recently, helping to build on his future career.

John was joined by two others from the North Eastern regions to be recognised at the award ceremony including EmployerNominated winner, Nick Bateman from Euroa and the Chairman’s Award winner, Jeremy Fitch from Samaria.

Master Builders careers manager, Jarrod Flanigan said that this year’s nominees showed great determination and commitment to building their careers.

“Our judges described Section winner John as honest, genuine and dedicated.

“He’s certainly a credit to his employer and his registered training organisation.

“John has a great deal of determination to succeed at his carpentry apprenticeship, and his eagerness to learn made the judges certain he’s got a bright future ahead of him.

“Nick’s experience in cabinetmaking means he has an eye for detail and his work is of high quality; he sets exceptional standards for himself with customer satisfaction in mind.

“Jeremy is the type of apprentice that all builders like to have working for them,” Mr Flanigan said.

Master Builders CEO, Radley de Silva said that apprentices are essential to Victoria’s building industry.

“We need a skilled workforce in the building and construction industry that will continue to build Victoria.

“Acknowledging their hard work and dedication encourages apprentices across Victoria to continue their career path to achieve better and greater things in our industry.”
