EARN­ING A RIDE

Townsville Bulletin - - GO COWBOYS -

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.’’
