To help stimulate opportunities for school leavers in conjunction for MIGAS’ 100JOBS campaign, Allstaff Airconditioning have pledged to add another two apprentices to the eight they currently host.
Allstaff Airconditioning Operations Supervisor, Kerry Neame, spoke about the value apprentices bring to their employers and why businesses will benefit by participating in the 100JOBS campaign.
“We have a pretty diverse workforce of around 40 technicians based all over Melbourne working autonomously and the apprentices, who work with different technicians all the time, act as the glue of our organization,” he said.
Mr Neame offered the following words of encouragement for businesses currently considering taking on an apprentice as part of the 100JOBS campaign.
“It’s all about training, you’ve got to train our current crop of school-leavers right or there isn’t a much of a bright future for Australian industry… it’s got to happen!” said Mr Neame.
Inspired by the success of the 50in50 initiative in 2013, the 100JOBS campaign aims to place 100 job seekers with specific targets allocated to different regions across the country.
The 100JOBS campaign will highlight the importance of encouraging young people to consider apprenticeships and traineeships as a diverse career path, and to educate them on the opportunities available to them to gain qualifications and work within the Australian industry sector.
The 100JOBS campaign commenced on December 1 2014 and runs until February 28 2015.
