What is the key mindset for success in this role?
Tradespeople in our construction/renovation projects acknowledge that the learning process is ongoing. Therefore, the ideal tradesperson is a good listener who can follow directions and figure out how to overcome setbacks on construction projects. At the same time, they are service-oriented and are concerned with quality, punctual work and public safety. Careless tradespeople who only want to collect a paycheck will NOT be a good fit for this role.
When does this role need to be filled?
The construction tradespeople at Kalos serve as the foundation of our greater mission to serve Floridian communities. Without those tradespeople, Kalos would operate on a much smaller scale and would NOT have the same positive impact on Floridian business centers. They signed up for their role to develop professionally while making a visible difference to others. The best-suited applicants for this position see the role as a vehicle for their own learning and for making a positive difference in markets and communities across the state.
