Traineeship success

Three locals from Traralgon and Trafalgar have successfully gained full time employment with Gippsland Water after completing a Water Industry traineeship with Apprenticeships Group Australia (AGA).

Corey Rogers and Michael Tulloch (both from Traralgon) and Mae Jobson (from Trafalgar) who gained their traineeship in 2015, have all transitioned to fulltime employees through a competitive interview process over recent months.

“We’re delighted at the success of our traineeship program and partnership with Apprentices Group Australia,” said Managing Director of Gippsland Water, Mr David Mawer.

“The ongoing employment of Corey, Michael and Mae is something we’re very proud of in terms of employing local people and in helping young Gippslanders get their first full time job and a significant positive break in the early part of their lives,” continued Mr Mawer.

Michael is now a full time trainee-operator at the Gippsland Water Factory; Mae is working in Water Treatment sharing her time between the Rawson and Willow Grove facilities, while Corey is based at Mirboo North Water Treatment plant.

Gippsland Water is again partnering with AGA to offer new traineeships within the water industry.

“We’re delighted to be in a position to do this again. This reinforces our commitment to invest in the region, not just in terms of pipes and pumps, but also its people and its future”, concluded Mr Mawer.

Apprenticeships Group Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that provides employment, placement, trade training and support services to apprentices, trainees, students and businesses.
