Nail your career success plans
Tradie stands with equipment in front of a partially built house.

As a carpenter, you’ll construct, install, renovate and repair structures and fixtures of wood, plywood and wallboard. You might also work with plastic laminates, perspex and metals. Work can take you from the crafty settings of a workshop to the heights of a building site—success is yours for the making. The best part: you get to use heaps of power tools.
