Security company employs and trains MatchWorks job seekers
Tuesday, 18 April, 2017
Business Risks International Pty Limited (BRI Training) is
assisting MatchWorks job seekers with training and employment
The specialist corporate risk management and security services
organisation is also a Registered Training Organisation. They
assist MatchWorks clients to complete a Certificate II and III in
Security to obtain their licence, and then find suitable employment
The relationship has seen 12 MatchWorks job seekers with a
disability employed since 2015, with further interviews and
enrolments in progress.
MatchWorks client Susan (pictured) has been employed with BRI
Security for more than a year after facing long term unemployment
and experiencing anxiety and depression. She has also received a
BRI Training scholarship to complete her Certificate III.
BRI Security Business Development Manager Denis Jessop said it's
a great result to place MatchWorks job seekers in employment
following support and training.
"Susan is just one job seeker we have worked with to
complete her security qualifications, which followed on to
employment. Susan was the only female in the class and never
thought it was something she would do. Now she loves working in
corporate security," Denis said.
"Boyce Nikora from MatchWorks Flemington is also great. He
understands what we need and is always willing to help."
