Local jobseekers, a number of them indigenous, have been offered employment at the new Big W store.
Best Employment and Diversity Dimensions joined forces to deliver a series of three-day pre-employment
training courses aimed at people who need assistance in finding a job. So far six participants have gained employment with Big W, most of them indigenous. Leanne Cochrane started work with Big W last week and said the training had been a great help.
“The course helped a lot with resumes and interviews,” she said. “At the moment I’m helping the workers but when Big W opens I’ll have a night fill position.”
