Wednesday, 4 October 2017, Minister for Employment, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash and Federal Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis MP dropped into The Dog & Monocle to congratulate Brock, Kylie of Essential Employment & Training & Carley Amey and Tess Thomas.

The Dog & Monocle co-owners, Carley Amey and Tess Thomas, could not speak highly enough of Brock.

“When we started this business, we knew we wanted to contribute and give back to the community. We found out about the PaTH program through Essential Employment & Training and the opportunity to trial and hopefully hire an unemployed young person, we thought that was exactly what we wanted to do,” Ms Amey said.

Ms Thomas said she and Carley were introduced to Brock through the local DES service, Essential Employment & Training about the PaTH process.

“He’s a wonderful addition to our business and has a fantastic attitude. We would definitely encourage other Nowra businesses to find out about the PaTH program and give a young unemployed person a go; they have a lot to offer,” Ms Thomas said.

Young people like Brock are getting real jobs thanks to the PaTH program. By doing an internship, Brock was able to demonstrate the value he could add to a business and he is now making a wonderful contribution,” Minister Cash said.

Kylie from Essential Employment & Training will continue to provide ongoing support to Brock & the owners at The Dog & Monocle.
