“The reason I wanted a traineeship: I wanted to work towards something – this way I’m working and I get my certificate”

Bree-Anna is finding a real sense of purpose after being shortlisted by Maxima for a business administration traineeship

The City of Salisbury are host to 5 Maxima trainees across different business areas who are exposed to more than one facet of business as they meet regularly and so get to talk about each other’s roles.

Based at the Polaris Business & Innovation Centre, Bree-Anna is part of this group of new Maxima trainees across the City of Salisbury.

She applied for multiple traineeships, the last with Maxima, who called to tell her they would like to put her forward for this particular role.

“Maxima have been awesome from the start.”

Bree-Anna was really focused on gaining a traineeship as she knew it would set up a good career path.

“The reason I wanted a traineeship: I wanted to work towards something – this way I’m working and I get my certificate”

Bree-Anna works as the Trainee Receptionist in Business Administration for the City of Salisbury’s Business and Innovation Centre, attending to general jobs, answering phone calls and emails, setting up for client meetings, catering, organizing external events among other things.

“If we see something we’re interested in, it could open up more job opportunities. I’ll keep my options open.. I’m interested in the law side of things.”

Bree-Anna is able to study towards a Certificate III in Business whilst gaining a real world view.

“Maxima have provided much more support than I even expected. I already had a catch up a few weeks ago with Denise – she’s been amazing!”

“Ever since starting, she’s been so supportive, always checking in and offering visits to see how I’m doing.  It’s great knowing that we can have someone to call anytime we need to talk through any issues or for extra support for the study; they make sure someone is there to guide you through it all.”

Bree-Anna praises the City of Salisbury too – because they offered a set of traineeships she’s been able to make new friendships, compare notes and extend her learning even further by talking to the trainees in other areas.

“We have people our own age to relate to, Janet from Polaris Centre is there to guide me through and teach me everything, and our inductions have been really good.”

“With all this support you’re really set up to succeed. – I would definitely recommend a traineeship through Maxima to anyone”
