Persistence pays off for Bradley

Success Stories

One of the things that make Directions successful is our holistic approach to our clients. Add to that a very persistent client and you have a recipe for success.

Bradley Smith has been attending Directions’ Career Centre in Northam for assistance in applying for an apprenticeship for three years while continuing his job with a local retailer. Career Development Officers Megan and Vikki have been working with Bradley, assisting him in his continuing quest to gain an apprenticeship in Engineering.

When Directions’ GTO was asked to source apprentices for a Wheatbelt company we contacted our colleagues at Career Centre for potential candidates. Bradley was at the top of the list as someone who was passionate about gaining a trade and Career Centre had always been impressed by his continuing push to follow his dreams of qualifying in a trade.

Bradley and the Career Centre officers made sure his resume highlighted all his engineering skills, went through mock interviews to prepare for the panel interview for the apprenticeship and followed through with Bradley from beginning to end of his application process supporting him when needed.

Early this month Bradley signed his training contract with Directions as a Welder/Fabrication apprentice and we collectively couldn’t be prouder.

Bradley tells us it took a long time, but he is finally doing what he has always wanted to do having achieved an adult apprenticeship. Congratulations Bradley!
