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 Holly Roberts from Painter Girl & Co in Tauranga – Holly went from 12 years of hospitality as a head chef to her painting and decorating apprenticeship.

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.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

PakNSave Voucher Scam

Diane from Mount Maunganui

Email came through this morning from JustNZDeals saying you've won a $50 PakNSave voucher. Even showed several stickman pics with it. What gave it away is asking to pay $1 to claim your voucher. Rang PaknSave who confirmed it's not legit. Don't be fooled by them even giving your name.
