On September 11th, Oz Group were lucky enough to work with The Smith Family, Coffs Harbour City Council, and other Coffs Harbour businesses on the Work Inspiration Program. Work Inspiration is an employer-led initiative that provides young people with opportunities to experience the world of work first hand in a meaningful and inspiring way.
Students were invited on a tour in which they spoke to various employees about the roles within our packing facility and got in experience blueberry packing first hand. Students were then placed in small groups and given the opportunity to interview key employees, such as our Junior Accountant, Chief Agronomist, HR/WHS Consultant and one of our Directors.
Following the interviews, students were taken on a tour of a local blueberry farm and were able to learn about farming and the responsibilities that come with it.
Oz Group were honoured to be a part of the 2019 program and hope that the students had an enjoyable time and considered the many careers available to them in the local farming industry.
