Seriously, he’s a top bloke and one of the best sparkies you’ll find. He first started working for us in 2011 – he had a break ( most likely modelling?) – but we’re better now ’cause he’s back.

                                                                                  Ethan is one of our youngest labourers, but is proving to us that age isn’t everything. He has picked things up nicely and has become proficient at all aspects of the job.

                                                                                  • Damien Manton

                                                                                    Damien started with us in 2019 as a solar trade assistant. He has already completed a few years of his electrical apprenticeship  with his previous employer and so we’ll likely take him on soon as an apprentice to continue his training.

                                                                                    • Kyle Ricketts

He has plenty of experience in the solar and electrical industry and came recommended by one of our other staff members. He has already completed part of his electrical apprenticeship, so we’ll be looking at signing him up to continue his training once he proves himself.
