Youth Jobs PaTH program giving young people an opportunity in WA.

Our Osborne Park and Mirrabooka sites in Western Australia are excited to have helped Timothy and Josephine find a job with Officeworks. Ines, Officeworks Manager in Morley, has worked enthusiastically with our team and is very pleased with the progress and hard work of both Timothy and Josephine.

Timothy really wanted to work, as he had been unemployed for a long time and felt that no one would give him a go. He now enjoys the team spirit and working together in an atmosphere that is friendly, and the culture caring, towards customers and team members alike. Tim has progressed into a career path that can lead him into Management within the Officeworks corporation.

Josephine is a very valued member of the local African community and has volunteered her services for many years.  Like Timothy, she had studied and was not able to obtain employment, and really just wanted a business to give her an opportunity to prove herself. Josephine is now enjoying permanent part-time employment and the interaction with customers and the team has given her much more confidence.

Josephine is exceptionally grateful for the Youth Jobs PaTH program and how it is giving younger people the opportunity to show their skills to an employer. We love seeing young people thrive when given the right opportunities and are pleased to have been part of this great success story. Well done to all!
