Many roles these days require basic computer knowledge. You also need to be able to apply for jobs online and have an up-to-date CV. Computer training assists with this. We can refer you for training in the following areas: MS Office Suite, Xero, specific software.
While being able to drive to work is important, you may need to consider a driving role such as a forklift operator, delivery driver, loader operator or truck driver. You may need to obtain licensing for these roles.
