HIA Builder & Manufacturer Program

Building trade and business loyalty with tomorrow's tradespeople

What is the Builder & Manufacturer Program?

The Builder and Manufacturer Program is a partnership between HIA, builders and manufacturers to encourage the uptake of apprentices in our industry.

It's for any builder or manufacturer who sub-contracts work or has customers who work in the trades. It provides safety-trained, dedicated, manpower, with all the HR recruitment and paperwork handled by HIA. You can be sure that any apprentice sponsored has met HIA's strict criteria and matching process to ensure you get a reciprocal fit.
