Jobs 101 starts 43 people in the Auto Industry
WPC Group and the Leader Community Newspaper Group are on target to place 101 people within 101 days. To date, the campaign launched on the 12th September 2011 has placed 83 people into Apprenticeships and Traineeships in a number of occupations. Prime Minister Julia Gillard welcomed the initiative. Each week over 1.94 million readers(1) have read about the importance of skilled careers in Australia and how apprenticeship training programs will help reduce organizations skills gaps. There have been 315 Articles published within the 33 Leader Community Newspaper titles in the past 71 days making this the largest community media jobs campaign focused on Apprentices and Trainees in Australia’s History.
One of the key highlights of the Jobs 101 campaign has been attracting both automotive apprentices and automotive employers to the program ‘said CEO Nicholas Wyman’. 2012 is shaping up to be a great year for people thinking of joining WPC Group as an Automotive Apprentice.
