Day in the life of a “Chippy”
There’s never a dull moment when you’re a carpenter’s apprentice. One day, you may be cutting and refining raw materials forstunning new interior cabinets to interpreting specifications for an outdoor deck – a day on the job is packed with learning opportunities.
If you are keen on getting into the construction industry, there are several factors to consider. Firstly, it’s important that you possess a keen eye for detail. Secondly, you enjoy working with your hands as this forms the majority of your carpentry work. Thirdly, you like working outdoors.
The income of a fully qualified carpenter can vary depending on if you are working as part of a large team, work for a leading enterprise or a smaller company, wish to start your own business, or opt to work independently as a subcontractor.
