Good job opportunity
Job vacancies: Posted 28-9-07 Deadline - No Deadline
Graham Grant from New England North West Group Training has contacted me about what he thinks is a great job opportunity for a Year 12 student who wants to start work after the HSC. It is a traineeship in a "hands-on" job, you would get a Certificate II and do lots of travel so you need your P-plates. The job involves working for an international fire protection company and you would be repairing, maintaining and checking fire equipment. If you are interested, ring Graham on 67626755 or pass this on to someone you know who might be interested in this. Remember that a job in the hand is better than an apprenticeship never offered.
