Saying ‘tradie' usually conjures images of blokes waking up early and heading to a job site; 7/11 pies and ice coffee on the way to work before spending a hard day on the tools. While this might be the reality for some, in 2020 the world of construction is expanding and looking a lot different. While the construction industry does include your more well-known trades like electrician, carpenter and plumber there’s also jobs like civil engineer, draftsperson and project manager which don’t fit into the traditional images of the industry.
