Trainee workers on road to success

FLOOD damage to roads in the region is already generating jobs, with companies looking for workers as they gear up to make repairs.

Employment Services Queensland Bundaberg branch is already moving to fill the need, giving workers the training they need to get jobs.

This week 16 jobseekers turned up to complete the Traffic Controller level 1 course that will give them the skills to get work.

Paul Robinson, one of the trainees, said he was very keen to get some work.

“I've got a family to support and bills to pay. I want something that's stable and secure for the long term,” he said.

Mr Robinson said it was hard to get a job in this climate, but he was still trying.

Employment Services Queensland site manager Gwilym Lewis said they were very pleased with the turnout.

“We've got another course in a few weeks that is half full already,” he said.
