Daisy Farmer PhotoOur Narrogin client Daisy Farmer has successfully earned herself a Production Technician Traineeship with BHP Billiton WAIO Pty Ltd and is looking forward to starting her new career in August.

Daisy is an indigenous mature-age woman who had been a stay-at-home carer for a family member since 2014. Daisy first visited Directions’ Career Centre in Narrogin in February this year seeking help to find employment.

Career Development Officer, Rebecca Matten assisted Daisy with a Career Action Plan and developing a great resume and cover letter for her applications. Daisy also received resources for online job searching and weekly jobs board emails.

In April and May Daisy attended several career guidance sessions where Rebecca helped her to apply for two trainee positions with BHP. Directions collaborated with staff from KAATA (formerly KEEDAC) in Narrogin to assist Daisy in completing her online applications, including scanning of documents and uploading of identification.

Following completion of the interview and assessment process with BHP in Perth, where Daisy was the only indigenous participant in a group of 60 applicants, she was offered the role on a FIFO basis, with a 2:1 roster based at the Yandi site.

“I found Directions’ Career Centre to be a really good help, I wouldn’t have been able to do it otherwise. I will be recommending the service to other people in my community and want to thank Rebecca.”
