Lots of exciting things have been happening for people in our Mambourin Business Solutions (MBS) team! From trainees obtaining their forklift licences to SLES participants securing employment – there are many achievements to celebrate.
SLES kicking goals
We’d like to say a big congratulations to our SLES participants who have been working hard towards their employment goals, despite having to do much of their learning online.
Here are a few highlights:
For the past six months, Caitlin has been practising and preparing for her Learner Permit test. We’re thrilled to share that all her hard work paid off – she sat the test at the end of November and was successful!
We’d also like to share that Thomas is moving from the SLES program into supported employment with the MBS gardening team.
Tristan got a part time job at a library, and Kyle and Chloe started supported employment. They have all completed their work education certificates and will be graduating soon.
Trainee success stories
Our trainees have also been achieving great things!
Congratulations to Shar Reh, Jerome and Yiannis who all recently obtained their forklift license.
Shar Reh, along with Vicky and Jerome also successfully gained open employment in part-time roles.
Monica, who has completed both our traineeships program and SLES, is now employed as part of our Woodwork team at MBS Melton.
And last but not least, Josh has gained an apprenticeship at MEGT.
We are so proud of the dedication and hard work that everyone has put into achieving both their short- and long-term goals under difficult circumstances. Well done everyone!
Moving into leadership
We’d also like to congratulate Dee-Jay from our MBS team who successfully moved from a supported employment role into a full-time supervisor position in our Derrimut warehouse.
A few months ago, Dee-Jay wrote us a blog post talking about how she overcame shyness to achieve her dream job. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can still find her post Disability no barrier to being a great leader, in Mambourin’s latest news.
