CVGT provides a perfect match

When Shaun underwent a heart valve replacement, he couldn’t continue his work as an automotive workshop foreman.

His employer wanted to help him find a new role, so contacted CVGT Australia, which provides an innovative and diverse disability employment service in Knox.

CVGT’s Business Development Consultant, Jen Weston, reverse marketed Shaun to Verst Fire Services in Boronia as a trainee fire services technician.

Since Shaun commenced, it’s been a perfect match and he is growing and learning in his role every day.

To assist Shaun, CVGT purchased steel capped work boots and clothing as personal protection equipment required for the role. His new job is varied and has allowed him to travel, gain new skills and develop positive relationships with his colleagues.

Verst is impressed with Shaun’s work ethic and capability and is committed to providing Shaun with continued training, support and a promising career. For employers such as Verst, new trainees qualify for a substantial wage subsidy to assist with training throughout the initial six months of his employment.

CGVT places a high value on providing local employers with local work-ready people and who come at no cost to employers, with the possible added bonus of a wage subsidy, as CVGT is federally funded.
