Bus keeps workers in a job
EMPLOYMENT service NEATO is not only helping their clients find a job, but is helping them get to their workplace by providing them with a bus service.
With a lot of clients coming from places like Wonga Beach and Cooya Beach, where there is no public transport and with the limited services available in Mossman and Port Douglas, NEATO decided they needed to help their job seekers.
Recruitment adviser Toni Hopper said their head office decided they would be able to get more people into jobs with a bus service.
‘‘We have already placed a couple of people in Port at the Sheraton that had no transport and we are taking them to work every day,’’ she said.
‘‘The bus is beneficial to our clients who want to work but have no way of getting there, people who don’t have their licence or might have their licence but no vehicle, or their car breaks down.
‘‘The aim is to get more people employed, so it’s a service for clients registered with NEATO.
The bus is currently running Monday to Fridays but will become a seven day service when there is demand. NEATO clients are encouraged to enquire about accessing the service.
