A Maori labourer's hard work has been recognised at an industry awards conference.

The Scaffolding & Rigging Association awarded the scaffolding student of the year award to Reihana Fraser, the team leader of Daveron Scaffolding in Christchurch.

He told Waatea News his rise from unemployment to becoming team leader is all down to hard work.

Mr Fraser has been awarded a scholarship from Te Tai Poutini Polytechnic's Diploma in scaffolding management.
