Rapid is a 30-year-established and Australian-owned building company operating from a base in North Parramatta. Through specialist divisions which we have developed and nurtured over the life of the company, Rapid delivers construction, refurbishment, upgrade, Heritage, new build, remediation and facilities maintenance works for an extensive range of private, government and commercial clients across the Greater Sydney Metropolitan region and beyond.

Rapid has a strong, proud history of engaging apprentices in the carpentry, building and construction sectors. Many of our current Foremen, Leading Hands and Project Managers started their carpentry apprenticeship with Rapid and have progressed on to Cert IV and Diploma studies.

We believe strongly in the benefits of a site-based carpentry apprenticeship as the most comprehensive introduction to the industry – our goal for all of our apprentices is not simply for them to achieve Cert III Carpentry, but rather for the apprenticeship to provide a solid ground in the principles and practice of full multi-trade site management. Today’s Apprentice Carpenter equals our future Leading Hand, Foreman, Project Manager, Contract Administrator, and ultimately senior manager, dependent upon particular areas of interest and career path preferences.

We respect and value diversity, pride ourselves on our multi-cultural workforce and recognise hard work and loyalty. We seek energetic, focussed, career-minded students who have successfully completed Year 12 and are now looking for a vibrant, stimulating practical learning environment. We offer opportunities across new build, refurbishment, Heritage and a variety of other disciplines in all manner of sectors, including but not limited to rail, government, commercial, local councils, schools, social & community housing, charity, aged care and transport.

We offer solid, dependable and ongoing mentor-mentee relationships for our apprentices whereby they partner with Senior Management and our qualified tradespeople in support of both practical and theory-based learning; every effort will be made for those with a passion for building in order that their apprenticeship represents the most valuable and practical site-based educational experience possible.
