Meet Amanda Hewer, Amanda is a Cbus member, former telecommunications technician and one of the Master Builders Association SA’s (MBA SA) newest recruits as a Born to Build Field Coordinator.

Helping female apprentices find their voice

Amanda brings over 18 years of experience and is working hard to promote the industry to young people across the state, with a particular focus on encouraging females to consider the construction industry as a career option.

After completing university, Amanda realised her area of study wasn’t quite right for her and after a conversation with a friend who was planning to start an apprenticeship, she decided to enter the industry and hasn’t looked back.

Although she was comfortable working in a male-dominated industry, Amanda understands the importance of female representation in the industry. She acknowledges that she didn’t have anyone to look up to or anyone who understood the female experience on construction sites – so she’s become that person for other young females.

Amanda is yet another example of the incredible and critical work our members do. Thank you, Amanda!
