Numbers make campaign work
Auto traineeships the latest on offer
MORE than 100 employers have pledged 7702 jobs for first-time jobseekers across Australia at the halfway mark of the 5000 jobs in 50 days campaign.
In Sydney apprenticeships and traineeships are being offered for 34 young people in roles varying from vehicle technicians to administration staff, thanks to the WPC Group.
WPC’s general manager Andrew Sezonov said it had more than 150 trainee roles available nationally.
“Securing a trade is a great option for a jobseeker as it trains them in a real-world classroom where they learn skills and principles that directly relate to the task in front of them,” he said. “It provides a strong base foundation for acquiring the highly sought after life skills required to successfully navigate their way through their career and more generally, their life.”
Salvatore Tropea started his apprenticeship last week and is one of five apprentices currently placed at Sydney City Nissan.
Service manager Nick Katris said Salvatore had the one criteria that they always sought.
“He’s just passionate about cars,” he said.
WPC Group is affiliated with Group Training Association of NSW & NT, which has pledged 500 jobs to the campaign.
The 5000 jobs target was met within four days of the campaign, however, employers are urged to continue outlining their entry-level vacancies available.
