EARNING A RIDE
CASSANDRA Morseu and Darryl- Lee Stewart are in the driver’s seat when it comes to a new career path.
The Townsville duo started work with Sunbus this month, starting their path toward becoming drivers with the transport company.
They were given the career opportunity through the North Queensland Cowboys’ Learn to Earn program, a Federal Governmentfunded initiative providing training, work experience and employment opportunities for 30 unemployed indigenous job seekers.
Cowboys Learn to Earn mentor Alby Reuben said the program will better prepare and upskill these participants for real career opportunities.
Welcoming the pair, Sunbus general manager Tony Morrison said the company was pleased to support indigenous Aussies and the wider community.
“The combination of support provided to them through the program that includes them learning on the job will provide these participants with real career opportunities and for Sunbus to gain some more skilled and valuable employees.’’
