A trend for the bet­ter

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

YOUNG In­dige­nous grad­u­ates have bucked the youth un­em­ploy­ment trend with the help of WA’s largest trans­port and lo­gis­tics com­pany.

Trainees Tay­lor Kick­ett, Louise Smith, Tre Grif­fiths and Bradley Moore re­cently grad­u­ated at Cen­tu­rion as part of its Frank Car­daci Trainee­ship.

Cen­tu­rion is part of the east­ern Perth suburbs – the third high­est in the state for youth un­em­ploy­ment, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent re­port based on ABS data.

Mun­dar­ing, Guild­ford and El­len­brook were listed in the third-high­est group with 15 per cent youth un­em­ploy­ment, ahead of Northam.

Cen­tu­rion chief ex­ec­u­tive Justin Car­daci said the trainee pro­gram pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for young peo­ple to change their cir­cum­stances and their lives for the bet­ter.

“The Frank Car­daci Trainee­ship is unique be­cause it of­fers young peo­ple an en­vi­ron­ment where they can learn and grow both inside and out­side of the work­place,” he said.

In­dige­nous af­fairs man­ager Justin Kick­ett said the pro­gram owed its suc­cess to the sup­port from men­tors.
