JB put his admin skills to good use at a unique work placement at our corporate office.
A career in administration
As a motivated jobseeker, JB decided to take the next step towards paid employment with our April School Holiday Employment Program (SHEP). He worked with our employment team to set specific goals and develop skills to prepare for the workplace.
As part of the program he put his skills to the test in a work placement of his choice. JB is interested in administration and wants to work within an office setting. He also did work experience with the Department of Premier and Cabinet and assisted them with data entry and compiling documents.
So when an opportunity in our corporate office opened up in late April, JB was keen to start!
Working in the office
Together with his support worker Steven, JB provided support to our marketing and human resources teams on a wide variety of jobs.
Over the several days, he gained a wealth of experience and developed key workplace skills, which include:
- Printing and collating marketing materials
- Compiling and organising payslips and recruitment packs
- Liaising with various teams to complete tasks
- Proficiency with using office devices, printers, and information systems
From this experience JB gained valuable insight into office working life and learned to collaborate well with others. His support was a great help to our corporate team and we were very grateful for his efficiency and dedication to the work!
Steven was also impressed by how fast JB adapted to each new task he was given.
“From our time together it’s clear that JB has got a great approach to work and an amazing work ethic,” he says.
Together, the two of them are working to build on JB’s skillset with more work experience in other areas.
Best of luck for the future JB – with your determination we’re sure you’ll find success! If you’d like more info about JB then contact us here or at 1800 610 665.
