Long Service Corporation - Portable long service schemes in NSW

The Long Service Corporation administers a scheme which provides a portable long service benefit for eligible workers in the building and construction industry in NSW. All benefits and requirements are determined by the Building and Construction Industry Long Service Payments Act 1986.

The scheme allows eligible workers in the industry to work for different employers or as subcontractors and qualify for a long service benefit that is paid for by a levy on building and construction work in NSW. The levy is collected by the Corporation and its agents and is invested in accordance with NSW Treasury requirements until required to fund long service payments.  read more

Norwest Trade Day

AWCINSW were invited to attend and present at the Trade Norwest open day. Trades Norwest is a Senior High School with a vocational focus on students who are keen to learn a trade whilst they complete their HSC.

The open day allowed students from Trades Norwest as well as students from other schools to visit the Trades Norwest for the afternoon and talk to industry leaders and representatives about opportunities in a variety of industries.

AWCINSW represented the wall & ceiling industry and were able to show interested parties some of the great benefits of choosing a career in wall & ceiling lining. AWCINSW have a package that we provide interested school leavers that includes the DVD “The Best Kept Secret” as well as flyers about choosing a career in Wall & Ceiling linings. We also provide them with copies of On The Surface magazine. This gives them an opportunity to see that wall & ceiling linings encompasses more than plasterboard. We also have giveaways such as builder’s pencils, pens, lip balm and other items to encourage potential apprentices to come and talk to us.

AWCINSW also keep a database of school leavers who may be interested in joining the wall & ceiling profession and are looking for employment, so if you are thinking of taking on an apprentice, give us a call, we may be able to link you up with someone. read more
