Jobs Target Exceeded
February 19, 2016
A PLAN to create 100 jobs in 100 days for south-west young people reached its target with 19 days to spare.
The project between South West TAFE, Westvic Staffing Solutions and Brophy Family & Youth Services has even exceeded the target with 108 jobs being created so far.
On Monday, the 100th person employed under the scheme started work as an apprentice plumber in Camperdown.
Beau James, 21, said that after a year at university studying to be a physical education teacher he had decided uni life was not for him. He set his sights on getting a trade and has secured an apprenticeship with Keith Baker.
