Big Plus for Mornington Business

Eddie owns Tarrion Kitchens in Mornington. His business is blooming and he has lots of work on. When Eddie needs new employees he calls up Damian at SkillsPlus Employment Services.  

 

“SkillsPlus was recommended to me by the Salvation Army. It’s easy to give Damian at SkillsPlus a call. I don’t need to advertise or look through hundreds of job applications. Damian does it all for me,” said Eddie.  

 

“We work closely with local businesses to help them find candidates that are ready to work and provide a range of supports when employers, like Tarrion Kitchen, employ a new staff member through us” said Damian Paul from SkillsPlus.   Tarrion Kitchens currently employ two candidates from SkillsPlus, one of these candidates is Joshua, who started with Tarrion Kitchens a few months ago.

 

Joshua is currently training up a new candidate from SkillsPlus to work at the local cabinet maker’s warehouse.

 

“I would describe SkillsPlus as a well-organised Employment Provider and would definitely recommend their service to other local businesses. Joshua has shown real initiative and is committed to his job. I couldn’t have asked for better candidates,” said Eddie.

"SkillsPlus was very easy to deal with and I got to speak with someone straight away. Damian sat down with me and listened to what I needed. I have already recommend SkillsPlus to other people I know. Bensen (the candidate) has shown real initiative and is committed to his job. It’s great to be able to teach someone new skills and provide them with an opportunity to get back into the workforce. I also really enjoy having input on the work from someone young who sees things with different eyes,” said Rodney, Tuscan Trellis Specialist Painting.
