“Hi, I am Daniel and I moved here from Walgett for a better life. I started to get in a lot of trouble at Walgett with no work and nothing to do. So I moved to Maitland for more employment chances. I met up with Darren Wright at the JobLink Plus office in Maitland. Darren assisted me in gaining a position in an accredited training program with Clubs NSW and the Barrington Group. In that training I gained invaluable skills and experience as well as a lot of friends. It was the best thing that I have done. Darren helped the trainer and it was great. [I had] tremendous support, including ongoing mentoring that I continue to benefit from. As a result I am now employed in a job that I love and [that has changed my life for the better. I would like to thank everyone who was involved and I would like to see more Aboriginal people working in the club industry”
