Curran Plumbing really values our team and its diversity. Grace Jones is a 2nd year apprentice who recently joined our team of technicians. Here’s a bit more about Grace:
What got you into plumbing?
“When I was 17, I started getting interested in finding my career and I really wanted to do a trade. I just did lots of research and tried to figure out which one I’d want to do the most and what I actually liked doing.”
When asked to elaborate on why she focused on trade, Grace said, “I really wanted to work outside and wanted a job that was always changing and was always going to be different.”
What’s your favourite part of plumbing?
“Meeting new people every day and having conversations with different people. Always moving around and doing something different every day.”
What do you like to do outside of plumbing?
Grace likes to hang out with family and friends, and “go on adventures”.
She also plays netball, soccer, and OzTag, so we’ve hired quite an athlete! If you’re interested in any of these sports, we’re sure you’ll be keen to discuss these with her when you meet her.
Grace’s #1 tip for aspiring plumbers
“Make sure that it’s what you want to do, make sure that you’ve tried it out before you actually do it, and that it’s something that you’re passionate about, because you’re going to be doing it every day.”
What’s something about you (outside of plumbing) that always surprises people when they find out?
It turns out that Grace can juggle, so the next time you see her, you can try asking for a demonstration. We can’t be sure that she’ll agree, but it’s worth a try!
