My Maintenance Crew Internships 2020

Posted: 14th Jan

My Maintenance Crew are looking for interns to commence Feb 11th 2020 to complete a four week internship and to set themselves up for ongoing employment.

 

The internships are unpaid* and are offered 3 days a week for four weeks (as well as an intake interview and an exit interview). The interns will have the opportunity to develop their employability skills, gain OH&S knowledge, participate in team building and undertake real work experience at our site in Bell Park. Our interns will be offered transport to and from work with pick ups and drop offs at central points throughout Geelong, they will be given lunch every day and will have the opportunity to work alongside our skilled team leaders. They will also work with our youth support team to develop a work/career plan that will help identify short and long term vocational and personal goals.

 

(*if a young person is eligible they may be able come through the PaTH program giving them some extra money in their youth allowance for the period of the internship. Check with their job active provider)

 

After the four week internship, we will go through a recruitment process, with each of the interns having the opportunity to interview for paid employment (award wages, not supported employment!). We are an employment project that supports young people at risk of long term unemployment to become work ready and prepared for long term employment. We want to support young people to become aspirational about work! Since commencing the internships and operating as a social enterprise we have been able to support more than 60 young people to undertake these internships, have offered employment to 25 young people and have assisted another 17 to return to study in vocational training!  

 

In addition to transport, food and uniforms, My Maintenance Crew offers counselling and mentoring support through the Engagement Coordinator role, financial literacy, fitness, health and wellbeing support as well as the opportunity to earn a real wage.

 

If you have anyone that is ready and looking for work, 17-25 years old and wanting an opportunity to work as part of a team, send through their resume! We will be holding interviews for internships in the weeks leading up to the 11th of Feb
