About MAG Apprenticeships

MAG was established with the desire to create more viable pathways for employers to engage apprentices through actively building accessible opportunities to build a rewarding career in the industry. Our experienced team takes on the responsibility of employing apprentices full-time, so you can have the low-risk, affordable, flexible workforce you need.

We believe employers need to have a flexible and reliable option when engaging apprentices.

By providing contracts as short as one week to ongoing, our Host Employers have the option to engage with our apprentices without the commitment of a full-term apprenticeship.

MAG is determined to secure our reputation in the industry by providing a unique service to all clients and apprentices. With a team of Business Development Managers, Apprentice Mentors & OHS Coordinator our goal is to provide a low-risk, recruitment service. 

Our mission is twofold:

To provide apprentices with full-time employment and gain opportunities that enable them to develop skills across all facets of their chosen trade. Our apprentices will be mentored to develop a professional approach, great work ethic, and ultimately become a future leader of the trade industry.

To provide clients (no matter how big or small) a reliable, flexible workforce that will not only support, teach and grow tomorrow’s tradespeople but will also provide a cost-effective labour hiring solution. 

Our Values


We’re dedicated to providing world-class service to both employers and apprentices to build a stronger industry.


We believe that consistent actions yield consistent outcomes, ensuring all our clients get the same specialist treatment, attention to detail, and personalised services.


We strive to ensure MAG is accountable at every step. We value and respect open communication.


We respect diversity and the value it brings to our organisation and the construction industry. We value authenticity, fairness, and integrity.
