'Huge concern': Apprentice intake drops in Gladstone

Keen new employees need to apply by Friday, July 28 at 4pm via GPC's website.

In an advertisement in The Observer's classifieds section GPC said its apprentices and trainees complete a "structured learning program".

"GPC is committed to providing outstanding employment outcomes for apprentices and trainees through our competitive working arrangements," GPC said.

The announcement comes of the back of concerns of apprentice numbers dropping in Gladstone due to a lack of work.

Some businesses in the building industry have stopped hiring apprentices, and member for Gladstone Glenn Butcher raised concerns that big businesses also dropped their intakes for 2017.
