New faces at Council
Friday, 20th March, 2009
City Council recently employed three new trainees and two new apprentices. Twelve-month traineeships have been awarded to Hannah Bennett (art gallery), Kate Pittaway (customer relations) and Chevy Kemp (youth services).
Aiden Johnston has secured a four-year plumbing apprenticeship and Marcus O'Brien a gardening apprenticeship. They have been indentured through the Australian Business Limited Apprenticeships Centre and are employed through group training provider, West State Training. West State Manager Andrew Pressler said the organisation monitors, mentors and supervises trainees and apprentices throughout their training. "They're a great young group coming through, with great work ethics and great personalities," Mr Pressler said of Council's new recruits. "They're all progressing well." Council's General Manager, Frank Zaknich, said Council always tried to have at least one apprentice or trainee in each of its five key areas at any one time.
