Braydon Hardwidge – Electrical Estimator
I have been with Isaac’s right through my apprenticeship, and I’m still here 9 years on. It’s been fantastic to work with such a great bunch of guys who are all here for the same reason – to work hard and have fun.
We do everything from electrical breakdowns on dairy farms through to farm pumping, and we cover a lot of ground. Isaac’s has a team of 52 people across our CHB and Hastings offices, but we’re always looking for keen young guys interested in apprenticeships and experienced sparkys.
There’s lots of good banter and we have just started doing role swaps, where we send people from CHB to our Hastings office and vice versa to show them different areas.
In CHB there’s plenty of on-farm work, whereas Hastings caters to a lot of our industrial and commercial clients.
With Isaac’s you know [the directors] will look after you, they’re good to their team and willing to help wherever they can. We also pay a voluntary ‘living wage’, as opposed to minimum wage, which is a great benefit.
