Troy is tops in NSW with MIGAS award for working excellence
TROY Masters of Coramba has been named Outstanding NSW Apprentice at this year's MIGAS Awards held in Campbelltown.
A trainee at Jaybro Civil and Safety Products warehouse in Coffs Harbour, Troy says he aims to go beyond work expectations.
"Six weeks in to the job I was asked to run the branch because my supervisor had to work from home," he said.
"I willingly took the opportunity and stepped in as warehouse manager.
"After that kind of trust from my supervisor, I have continued to aim above and beyond to meet deadlines in the best interest of both the customer and my host company."
He has completed a Certificate III Warehousing Operations course and Jaybro branch manager James Maggio has nothing but praise.
"Troy finished his modules in less than seven months and we made him permanent," James said.
"Right from the start Troy was keen to take on the role of manager and rearranged the warehouse to allow a lot more stock to be held in the depot.
"He has demonstrated initiative in the workplace by implementing measures to reduce courier costs and increase customer satisfaction.
"With such excellent product and company knowledge, Troy has been sent to several other branches tasked with training new staff as they come on board."
Troy said his employers have given a lot of opportunity to grow in his traineeship.
"They even sent me to Melbourne and I am going to Newcastle to take part in even more training which is really rewarding," he added.
"Jaybro really want me to stay with them to reach my full potential in more than just warehouse and logistical work."
MIGAS Awards acknowledge and support the hard work their apprentices and host companies accomplish in securing Australia's future.
