GTA Stories: Josh Grice
Josh Grice, QLD manager of MEGT, shares some of the success his organisation has enjoyed in placing apprentices and trainees into worthwhile jobs. MEGT, in partnership with SEQ Water, successfully placed a group of fifteen trainees into the utilities provider. The stand out successes were three young women, making headway in a non-traditional trade, and a young indigenous man who found a great fit into a career.
