Meet Victoria Wellard, the facilitator of Global Skills Youth Hub – a program for our job seekers aged 24 years and under. Victoria, who also acts as a Performance Manager, has spent the past six years with Global Skills assisting hundreds of young job seekers into their future jobs and careers. She is passionate about working alongside our young job seekers, which was recognised by Victoria recently being awarded Global Skills Manager of the Year at our recent annual awards in December 2021.
Supporting our younger job seekers to gain essential employability skills, Victoria says, “I very much enjoy mentoring our younger job seekers and helping them gain the skills they need to find employment, sit for an interview, speak on the phone to employers and much more.
“I ensure our Youth Hub participants understand the community supports around them and how they assist during the job search and work journey, supports that I didn’t know were available when I was younger.
“Upon completing the program, participants gain enough confidence and motivation to jump into the endless employment opportunities around them.
“Youth Hub has received great feedback and many success stories. Most of our young job seekers who have completed the program have since sat for an interview with confidence and gained employment.”
Our Youth Hub program runs Monday 9.30am – 1.30pm, for four weeks. Each session includes a guest speaker from a youth focused organisation.
If you are under 24 years of age and would like to get involved please contact Victoria via email, firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0405 914 467.
