MAG was established to create more viable pathways for employers to engage apprentices. We take on the responsibility of employing apprentices full time, so you can have the low-risk, affordable, flexible workforce you need. Our apprentices are available for contracts as short as one week.
Firstly, we want to get to know you and your business. We aim to work with you in building a team that adds value to your business operations.
OHS & COMPLIANCE
OHS is a team effort. At MAG we take the safety of our employees and clients seriously. We work closely with your business and can provide assistance where necessary to ensure compliance
HOST EMPLOYER AGREEMENT
We will draw up your Host Employer Agreement, which outlines your obligations in supporting the apprentice throughout their contract with you.
EXPERIENCE Vs EXPOSURE
By partnering with MAG, you are playing a vital role in helping to train tomorrows tradespeople. Whilst an apprentice can provide a cost-effective workforce solution they are not a qualified tradesperson. Apprentices rely on supervision, instruction and patience in order to grow. In return, you can rely on our apprentices to have great work ethic, attitude and willingness to learn.
Working with MAG you can ensure we do all the paperwork. All administrative duties leaving you free to get on with the job at hand.
The MAG team will manage the performance of the apprentice throughout their agreed placement with you. With regular consultation between MAG and the supervisors we rely heavily on honest, constructive feedback on the performance of our apprentices.
