Upskill West Coast works with Liddell Contracting.

In Greymouth, Liddell Contracting has been a cornerstone in engineering and construction since 1992.

Upskill West Coast has helped facilitate the transition of staff at the company into new roles. Beyond providing opportunities, Upskill also ensured that employees received industry-recognised training, equipping them with crucial skills for their respective roles.

Anna Liddell, Liddell Contracting’s Operations Manager, says: “The funding and support DWC's Upskill initiative offers to local businesses is truly remarkable. Through Tania’s dedicated team, we’ve been given the incredible opportunity to train our staff into roles that reciprocally benefit them and the company."

"The current funding channeled into the Coast's infrastructure makes it the opportune moment to invest in our team, keeping the work local. This strategy not only amplifies our work intake and productivity but strengthens our commitment to our workforce. By upskilling our current staff, we're poised for growth, paving the way for fresh employment opportunities.”
