Mantra rolls-out training for indigenous Australians
Mantra Group’s recruitment and training programme for indigenous Australian job seekers in Cairns will now be rolled-out to the broader Tropical North Queensland region.
After retaining four indigenous job seekers who originally participated in the program at Mantra Trilogy and Mantra Esplanade in Cairns, the group hopes to see further success at other properties in Port Douglas, Palm Cove and Cairns.
Each jobseeker participating in the programme receives a Certificate II in Hospitality and work readiness training, followed by work experience and further training and coaching on Mantra Group properties. Throughout the training period and for up to six months after the new employees start work, support is offered to both employees and supervisors to maximise staff retention.
Following the initial four jobseekers gaining employment, a further eight indigenous team members have been retained across a variety of Mantra’s Cairns and Palm Cove properties.
