Melissa finds her feet at Nandos with support from BUSY At Work

Melissa Hole is a motivated and dedicated young person who is achieving great success in her new role as a trainee shift supervisor at Nandos Toowoomba in the K Mart Plaza.

Since starting with the restaurant chain in September last year the 18 year old has been busy learning how to prepare and serve meals while learning about the operating side of the restaurant.

“I really enjoy the interaction with the customers and getting to understand the processes of running a business,” Melissa said.

Melissa is currently studying for her Certificate III in Hospitality which she hopes to complete by the end of this year.

BUSY At Work Senior Industry Training Consultant in Toowoomba, Mark Stevens said Melissa was just one of many trainees achieving success in her chosen field through the support of BUSY At Work.

“Prior to joining Nandos, Melissa was a jobseeker with Employment Services Queensland (JSA) in Toowoomba. When Nandos owner/manager Adnun Khan contacted us about wanting to employ an additional non school based trainee we spoke with the JSA who put Melissa’s name forward,” Mr Stevens said.

Now working at Nandos for seven months Adnun said Melissa was an enthusiastic and very reliable member of the Nandos team.

“Melissa has shown herself to be very capable and always puts in a great effort while at work. She is now guiding other staff and we have been very impressed with her progress,” Mr Khan said.

Mr Stevens said BUSY At Work had developed an ongoing working relationship with Adnun and his brother Albab over the past two years.

“BUSY has signed up a number of new traineeships in business and hospitality with their exciting new business venture ‘Cioccolato’, which has the possibility of becoming a national franchise.”

“Cioccolato are now enlisting BUSY’s services to source and sign up new trainees for their first shop in Toowoomba,” Mr Stevens said.

BUSY At Work Regional Manager West Highlands, Alison Welke said BUSY was pleased to be associated with new business adventures offering traineeships for young people in Toowoomba.

“Through our expert knowledge of the Federal Government’s Apprenticeship system coupled with a sound knowledge of job services and the State Government’s ‘User Choice’ Program, BUSY has been able to provide the Khan brother’s growing businesses with a high level of assistance.”

“BUSY At Work are committed to working with local businesses to ensure they have a quality recruitment to support the local community,” Ms Welke said.
