Looking to tackle a chronic shortage of quality building apprentices, the Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) leapt in, boots and all, to a multistage, cross-platform campaign that managed to win hearts and minds, not just of potential candidates, but traditional and new media too.
BCITO and Brand Spanking have teamed up to raise awareness about the growing labour shortfall in the construction industry Big Brother style. Hoping to highlight career opportunities the industry has to offer, the ‘Not your average shed’ campaign is challenging apprentices to build a shed in the Sylvia Park car park while cameras film every move.
The Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) has launched a new campaign with the aim of recruiting 5,000 new apprentices. And it’s doing it by focusing on the pros of working in construction, such as not racking up a huge student loan, being fit and muscular, spending time outdoors and being a total babe magnet.
