Earlier this year, Hall Electrical Senior Apprentice, Markham Jefcoate entered the ECANZ challenge. The ECANZ (Electrical Contractors Association of New Zealand) Challenge is an electrical industry competition to find the NZ Electrical Apprentice of the Year. We are proud to announce Markham received the 3rd highest score in the Auckland Region for the Domestic/Commercial category.

Contestants in the regional round of the national award competition were put through a series of practical tests and challenges. Such tests are designed to simulate real world situations and highlight ‘outstanding individuals with a flair for either domestic/commercial or industrial work.’ Markham did himself and Hall Electrical proud by performing extremely well in a number of these tests. Congratulations Markham!

The ECANZ Challenge is one way apprentices can test themselves and receive recognition as top performers. It is also a great motivation for younger members of the team to entry the competition in subsequent years. Hall Electrical has recently taken on a number of Junior Apprentices, so we look forward to challenging our Apprentices to compete in the years to come.

Hall Electrical has taken on a new Senior Apprentice Electrician. Welcome to Markham Jefcoate. Markham has come to Hall Electrical after completing a large part of his Apprenticeship with an old employee of Hall Electrical. Markham has a high skill level and strong customer service focus. Both attributes fit well with Hall Electrical’s company culture.

Markham previously worked as a building labourer before he decide to go to tech and start the process to become an electrician. This has given him a good understanding of the building process, particularly home and commercial renovation projects.

A resident of West Auckland, Markham is looking ahead to the future, and will complete his qualifications within the next year. He is also keen to experience the variety of work that comes with being a part of the Hall Electrical team.
