TOM Keady from John & Tom Master Builder hasn’t always been a builder, but his boss, John says that he has excelled in his craft, after taking the leap into the industry around 10 years ago.

Tom was a shearer by trade, and decided on a career change. John saw potential in Tom and offered him some part time labour work.

John said, “You could see he was really enjoying what he was learning and so he took up a mature age apprenticeship course through GOTAFE.

“Tom’s words to me after he finished his course were that he was proud of what he had achieved.

“After being given the chance, Tom saw the opportunity and took hold of it with both hands. And it paid off because he is now a fully qualified builder. It just goes to show you what a person can do when given an opportunity.”
