About Us

Masterlink is New Zealand's only national mentored apprenticeship programme specialising in plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying. 

Established in 2002, we are 100% owned by Master Plumbers and all our apprentices enjoy free Master Plumbers Apprentice Membership. Our purpose is to deliver first-class training and support to the plumbers of the future. How do we do that?

  • We screen and test candidates before recruiting the best for a Masterlink plumbing and drainlaying and/or gasfitting apprenticeship.
  • We assign each apprentice with a mentor to support them and help them complete their qualifications on time and with good marks.
  • We place our apprentices with ‘host’ businesses who are keen to grow and secure their future.

As the employer, we manage the whole apprenticeship, taking care of apprentice wages, ACC, PAYE, GST, HR needs and all off-job training arrangements. And we’re just a phone call away!

Our job is to make the apprenticeship hassle-free for all involved.

We are proud to support our apprentices and hosts with some excellent financial packages.
