Business Administration Trainee at Gunnedah Shire Council, Breanna Green, is the 2018 Runner Up in the Trainee of the Year category at the NSW Training Awards.
Miss Green completes her duties and tasks with aplomb and enthusiasm, including the provision of internal customer service across the organisation, records management and completion of Certificate III in Business Administration through TAFE.
Director Corporate and Community Services Colin Formann said Miss Green’s commitment to her work led to her being offered a second year’s traineeship with Council.
“Breanna is an integral part of the Governance and Administration team, and her recognition at the NSW Training Awards is another feather in her cap,” Mr Formann said.
“Due to her elevated understanding of the role, understanding of the services Council provides to the community and dedication to providing a superior service, Breanna’s responsibilities have been increased and she is deserving of this accolade.”
Mr Formann acknowledges the work from Gunnedah Shire Council’s Senior Governance and Administration Officer Donna Markey, who manages and trains the trainees that come through.
“Donna Markey does an excellent job preparing our trainees to achieve their best in their working career,” Mr Formann said.
A traineeship undertaken at Council is completed alongside a qualification through TAFE, ensuring skills are remaining in Gunnedah.
“Council is committed to training young people and giving them opportunities to stay and work in Gunnedah. It becomes a benefit for the Council business and the community to have skilled young people in our region,” Mr Formann said.
“Congratulations on this achievement to Breanna and Donna.”
Breanna is also the 2018 Winner of the NSW Government Women in Traineeships or Apprenticeships – Rural or Regional Council category of the 2018 Ministers’ Awards for Women in Local Government.
Gunnedah Shire Council is currently advertising for a Business Administration Trainee - 12 Months, and anyone interested in increasing their skills, knowledge and qualifications are encouraged to apply through Council’s website, www.gunnedah.nsw.gov.au
