It is clear that James Gamble has a bright future after being named MBA’s best Australian Apprentice in the building and construction industry and finishing his apprenticeship six months early.
The 24-year-old is the 2012 Master Builders National Apprentice of the Year – reward for his high performance in practical and theoretical components of his apprenticeship with construction company Fairbrother Pty Ltd.
Now the Hobart-resident is fully-qualified and enjoys a supervisor role with his employer.
“The best thing about my Australian Apprenticeship was that I was rewarded for my hard work meaning I became fully-qualified six months early,” James said.
“The experience of working on high-profile construction projects has given me the confidence to tackle any problem at work and in my personal life. I have set myself up for life and I am only 23 – some people my age are just starting their Australian Apprenticeship.”
James has also completed a Certificate IV in Occupational Health and Safety with Master Builders Tasmania and won the 2012 Skills Institute Construction Apprentice of the Year.
