WOMEN IN BUSINESS: Women dig male-dominated jobs

TIFFANY Swanepoel is seeing firsthand the revolution of women taking on a variety of careers which have for many years been male-dominated.

Bucking the trend and encouraging young women to pursue their dream career is what she loves to do every day as a field officer for Central Queensland Apprentices and Trainees.

Operating for 30 years, Central Queensland Apprentices and Trainees has built a strong reputation in the Rockhampton region.

It specialises in the employment and training of apprentices and trainees across the Central Queensland region. They also provide a recruitment service for host companies.

Tiffany explains: "We currently employ mainly females across our offices, from the CEO to office staff.

"Female field officers show an empathetic, nurturing and understanding side working with young male and female apprentices and trainees.

"They commit 100% to ensuring that all our apprentices and trainees complete their trade training."

With a growing number of women taking on trades as careers, Tiffany said it was inspiring and empowering to see women succeed in all types of business.

She said Central Queensland Apprentices and Trainees was a long-term player in the market with offices in Rockhampton, Biloela and Gladstone.

"We are locals looking after locals," she said.

"We are always looking for host employers to place our apprentices and trainees, this is a way the community can ensure that young people stay in the region and also ensure that current tradespeople pass on their skills to the next generation."
