CQ builder offers jobs to former JM Kelly workers

News Queensland has launched a campaign revealing the extent of the damage building company collapses have caused. Read more here.

IN the wake of local builder JM Kelly going into administration, another local builder is urging the now unemployed workers to contact them for job opportunities.

Just days after the collapse of the Rockhampton builder, which left 230 workers without a job, JRT Group has said they have positions available for some of the now redundant staff. 

In a public social media post, Managing Director of JRT Jason Thomasson said the company has a strong contract base and currently have positions available to be filled.

"It is now public knowledge that JM Kelly Builders have been placed into administration," the post read.

"This is very unfortunate and a sad time for any business and the people that have lost their jobs.

"I would like to offer my condolences to that are affected.

"I would also like to add that JRT have positions available for immediate start in all areas.

"JRT has a strong contract base and a solid market share in the civil industry, please ensure you apply as soon as you can to be eligible for these open positions as we appreciate the stress this has on families."

When contacted by the Morning Bulletin, Mr Thomasson said he didn't want to comment further, adding there was nothing more to be said.
