Marlene joined the Key Employment Administration team in May 2014 from a background in the accounting and private business sectors.
Her role at Key Employment is a varied one, working with and forming part of a dynamic team of individuals. She feels proud to be involved in a company that is helping to make a difference to people’s lives through training and employment.
Marlene and her husband made Coffs Harbour home since 1991, now with two grown children.
They are a close knit family who have enjoyed lots of different experiences together and have been actively involved in the community through various charitable and sporting organisations for many years.
“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“If it wasn’t for Key Employment I wouldn’t have the job I have now. I would not have had the confidence to apply for the job I did or do well in the interviews if it wasn’t for them. Key Employment isn’t scary! Just sign up with them and they will help you find a full-time or part-time job.”
“The service I received and the training I received was the best I’d had in years. They made the whole process easy and it wasn’t difficult to ask for help when needed. Gerry is a great trainer, and all the staff were friendly & helped at all times.”
“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
