Careers Outreach

Our Careers Team provide outreach across Victoria to showcase the benefits of a career in construction.

  • TAFE roadshows

    We bring our roadshows to TAFEs in both metro and regional locations across Victoria. These roadshows allow us to talk face-to-face with trade apprentices and discuss how we can help them navigate through their career. We are also joined by our industry sponsors to talk about relevant products and services. Apprentices can also get their hands on some great giveaways too. 

  • Career expos & engagement with schools

    We participate in a number of careers expos and school career days across Victoria to spread the word about the opportunities in the construction industry. If you would like us to attend your expo or event, please email careers@mbav.com.au

  • Master Builders Foundation - Tomorrow's leaders today

    Established in 2010, the Master Builders Foundation has been instrumental in nurturing the careers of young apprentices and those in the early stages of their careers in the building and construction industry. The Foundation has awarded over 110 scholarships, providing more than $230,000 of financial assistance for training and tools. We look forward to continuing that support. Please contact us to find out more about applying for a scholarship or making a tax-deductible donation to the Master Builders Foundation by emailing foundation@mbav.com.au "If you have goals to go further in the industry, you may as well go for a scholarship because it will help you make that next step.” "The $10,000 went a long way towards getting my license, otherwise it would have been hard to afford a diploma, get a good computer and software as an apprentice let alone get registered.” Devin Grant, Granted Constructions (Foundation Scholarship winner 2013 and Master Builders Apprentice of the Year 2011)
