Ken is a third year apprentice with aspirations of becoming a construction manager or registered builder. Prior to entering the industry he spent nine years working in sales and retail, latterly in a management role. After careful consideration and conversations with mentors, family and friends in the industry he made the choice to pursue a career in building and construction through carpentry as it combines his passion for design, problem solving and working with his hands.

With a young family to support, the support of the Foundation is very important to Ken in order to accelerate his career by completing both a Diploma of Building and Construction and a Diploma of Project Management and having access to a highly regarded mentor in the industry.
