Renewal SA’s Works Program team recently came to The Square to see how Darren Forrester was going in his new role.
After successfully completing a week of work experience with Palumbo, Darren is now working with the builder at Woodville West.
As part of their contract through the Works Program, Renewal SA contractors commit to providing work experience and employment for local people. Palumbo took on four work experience participants, after which Darren progressed through to paid employment.
Darren previously had been seeking employment since April 2015, but is now keeping busy and thoroughly enjoying his role as a site labourer with Palumbo.
In return, Palumbo will be sending him off for additional training in the city to build more skills and Darren is grateful for the opportunity.
