In the past 12 months, Man­durah Taxis has em­ployed six peo­ple in var­i­ous po­si­tions.

Busi­ness man­ager Julie Mur­ray said ev­ery­one should have an op­por­tu­nity to be em­ployed and en­joy all the ben­e­fits that pro­vides for in­di­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties.

“Be­ing em­ployed as­sists with bet­ter men­tal and phys­i­cal health and so­cial con­tacts,” she said.

Man­durah Taxis is also as­sist­ing South Metro Tafe, Man­durah Catholic Col­lege and SMYL Com­mu­nity Ser­vices to pro­vide work ex­pe­ri­ence place­ments and trainee­ship po­si­tions in both its me­chan­i­cal work­shop and of­fice ad­min­is­tra­tion ar­eas.

“This year, we have pro­vided work­place train­ing po­si­tions for 14 stu­dents,” Ms Mur­ray said. “This pro­vides young peo­ple with an op­por­tu­nity to gain prac­ti­cal skills they can use when they en­ter the work­force.

“It as­sists them to be­come con­fi­dent in ar­eas like work­place com­mu­ni­ca­tion, work­place safety, time man­age­ment and many other skills.”

Man­durah Taxis is also of­fer­ing em­ploy­ment po­si­tions for driv­ers.
