WorkABILITY Day builds strong relationships

Three ladies at Bunbury Visitors Centre

The City of Bunbury has been building strong relationships with Forrest Personnel over the past 12 months and was happy to be part of WorkABILITY Day in 2018.

The Bunbury Visitor Centre, located in the heart of the CBD, is often the first stop off point for visitors to Bunbury, with a high-level of customer service and friendliness very important skills needed to work in such a high-profile venue.

Lorelei Giorgi has studied Business Administration and has a Certificate IV qualification and having the opportunity to have some work experience at the Centre complemented plans she has for her future.

“I am very keen to work in administration in the future,” she said, “and it’s great that I have been given an opportunity to do that today.  Tourism seems like a good industry to be in, and it might be a great way to improve my photography skills too.  I have had a very good day, and this definitely helps me with my skills and working in a team.”

Senior Visitor Centre Officer Dee Tucker said Lorelei had fitted in well with the team and it was good to be able to help people with their career ambitions.

Visitor Centre Officer Erin Maynard, who was helping to show Lorelei how the visitor centre operated on day to day basis, said that Lorelei was doing well.

“Because of the weather, it hasn’t been a super busy day for visitors today,” she said, “but we have kept Lorelei busy sorting pamphlets and finding her way around the office.”

“Lorelei has been busy, and it’s been a great experience for her and for us.”
