Concreting traineeship cements career goals

Constructing a footpath in Lines Drive, Childers: Jared Everett and Shayne Steffens.

A clear display of skills and talent has led Jared Everett to a concreting traineeship with Bundaberg Regional Council’s Engineering Services team.

Jared began at Council as a labour hire worker in 2017, starting with Parks and Gardens, then Roads and Drainage and now Civil Works.

Supervisor Shayne Steffens said he was impressed with Jared’s natural ability from day one when he was tasked to lay a concrete slab in Churchill Street, Childers.

“After less than 10 minutes of instruction on how to resurface a section of the footpath, Jared went on to complete the job on his own with a perfect result,” he said.

“I am grateful that Council has given Jared this opportunity of a traineeship as he is a valued member of my team.

“He works extremely hard and is very gifted at what he does.”

Shayne said when Jared completes the Certificate III in Concreting he will have a qualification in steel fixing, resurfacing and waterproofing.

Jared is a local resident of the Childers area and is keen to further his career development, and feels the concreting traineeship is a good start.

“The traineeship is a very good opportunity that Council has offered me,” Jared said.

“I appreciate the fact that Shayne has recognised my potential because I will now have a qualification that opens up a lot more doors for me.”
