Success Story #6


Letter of Recommendation

22nd October 2018

To Whom It May Concern

My name is Ashuri. I have recently moved to Australia in order to seek employment within the mining industry here in Western Australia. For the first three months of my endeavor I had found it incredibly difficult to get my foot in the door and be able to get a face to face interview with one of the many recruiters that I had sent my CV to. That was until a friend of mine from my old Regiment had reached out to me In August to get in touch with a Organization called Working Spirits.

After I had reached out to Karyn Hinder, it had only taken her a day to reply to my inquiry and from that moment she had put the wheels in motion in order for me to be put in front of the good people at a leading Perth Mining Company.

It had only been less than 2 weeks since I first made contact with Mrs Hinder and by that time, through her fabulous work and support she had myself along with other ADF and American Veterans in front of the executives and managers at leading Perth Mining Company. After that initial meeting, it had been less than a week and I was offered a job as Trainee Truck driver, a job in which I will be starting on the 1st of November.

In all honesty none of this could have happened without the tremendous work of Working Spirits and the fantastic support of Karyn Hinder. Mrs Hinder and her organization have been tremendously supportive and understanding, who regularly check up on their candidates and extend their help whenever we are in contact with each other.

During our meeting with a leading Perth Mining Company a lot of us veterans agreed that none of us would have had the opportunity that was presented to us had it not been for Working Spirits and the Mining Company Executives themselves agreed that they wouldn’t have had the opportunity to hire veterans had it not been for the bridge that Working Spirits had created.

I am forever grateful to Mrs Karyn Hinder and her fabulous organisation. Mrs Hinder has been absolutely supportive and extremely help full since the day I had made contact with her and I was Mrs Hinder and her Organisation the very best for the future. If I ever come across another ADF, NZDF veteran who’s looking to find work within the FIFO industry then Working Spirits will be the first Organisation that I will refer them too.

All the best and Thank you!!!

Kind Regards

Ash (NZDF Army Veteran)

Army Success Story

Introducing Jay

I am now 3 months into my employment with Byrnecut. I have really been enjoying it. It has actually given me an opportunity to gain employment on site as a Paramedic. Which I don’t think I would have gotten if I want working for Byrnecut.

Once again thanks for the opportunity to get into the industry.
