Hard work & perseverance resulted in employment for Mitch.

Scott SMP Fabrication

Scott, who runs SMP Fabrication in Wauchope, was looking for a steel fabricator welder.

TURSA had been in regular contact with Scott and recommended Mitchell for a job.  Scott had some concerns as the job available was hard work and at the lower end of the pay scale.  He offered Mitch to come and try out.   Mitch showed a great work ethic and enthusiasm. As a result, Scott was impressed and decided to support Mitch with a casual position. 

This was all Mitch needed to motivate him. TURSA further supported Mitchell by providing him with clothing and some welding gear.

Scott was so impressed has been in touch with the TAFE college to enquire about enrolling Mitchell in a welding course to further develop his skills.

With his hard work and determination, Mitchell could potentially have sustained employment at SMP Fabrication. 

Scott is happy TURSA helped in finding a dedicated employee, and Mitchell is grateful for the opportunity to work in a job he enjoys.

“I had to make a choice and not working was no longer an option.  I was prepared to put in the hard work.”

Mitch being long term unemployed, had struggled to find job prospects due to personal and financial difficulties. He had lost his license and had to pay for car registration and other expenses.  This presented additional challenges as jobs often required transport.

To improve his chances of sustained employment, Mitch decided to take courses. He wanted to work outside and with his hands, so he kept asking TURSA to help him find a job that would suit.

Job Prospects

TURSA found the employer that was perfect for Mitch and with some persistence phones calls was able to provide him an opportunity.  SMP Fabrication had a large contract come in and this resulted in Mitch securing a trial and then the job. Now, he has a routine and is grateful for the opportunity to work with a great crew.

Mitch has achieved his initial job goal and is happy and fulfilled with what he does.
