Our skills subcommittee is headed by Stephen Lowe from the University of Wollongong and Lyn Watson of Highlands Recruitment. At their last meeting, it was identified that one of the core needs of our members is adult re-education and hospitality training.
In response to this we have reached out to a new hospitality training company to connect with our members. In late January, we met with Catherine Hamilton and Anthony Willoughby from the NSW Department of Jobs and Small Business about creating paid three-month internships to include hospitality and agricultural candidates.
An intern can be a valuable addition to your business and skill sharing is valuable to the larger Southern Highlands business community. If you are interested in having an intern please contact Brigid Kennedy directly as she is trialing an intern so can offer feedback.
