Testimonials From Successful JOBs Clients
Caitlyn – Whanganui – Employed
“I struggled for 3 to find a job in Whanganui. But after signing up for Ag Challenge, I learnt that it wasn’t so hard after all. While with Ag Challenge I learnt many skills, such as basic tool usage, how to plan and put together fences and how to be a key team player. I have been employed since January, thanks to the hard work of myself and my tutors. Thanks Ag Challenge! I couldn’t have done it without you!”.
