Hoping for a win in the categories of Small Host Employer of the Year and Trainee of the year, this achievement is certainly a testament to the hard work and outstanding commitment this small family-owned business has made to the community.
“Source Separation Systems (SSS) is a company who puts in substantial time and resources into every trainee. Their structured, innovative, and proven program gets the absolute best out of each individual and ensures success.
The quality of training, and the fact that all trainees are provided with opportunities for rotation into each section of the business, allows them to develop their skills and experience in a broad range of activities and identify their strengths and interests”, says Mitch Maguire, Novaskill Group Training Specialist.
In their purpose-built facility in Boolaroo, Peter Cruwys and his wife Melanie, are joined by a diverse team of experts, who all play their unique roles from service to product design, logistics to in-house manufacturing.
One of their standouts is 18 year old, Emily Coverdale. After school, Emily came to Novaskill and was quickly matched with the team at SSS. Starting with experience in the workforce, it wasn’t long before she too developed an extensive knowledge and passion for the sustainability industry.
“After being able to work side by side with my team, attend events, read publications, and build relationships with various industry leaders, I am committed to creating a more sustainable world.
I have been luckily enough to be involved in numerous projects, including a Schools Program that we initiated at the start of the year. As part of this project, I was able to engage with Educational Institutions around Australia, and then educate them on ways that they can improve recycling systems in their school. We made a real difference through this program” said Emily.
On behalf of Novaskill and the wider community, we would like to wish SSS and Emily all the best for the awards on Friday, October 8, 2021.
