working for the unemployed

Getting to grips with the nuts and bolts – Thabiso Ntobela

Thabiso_NtobelaWhen Thabiso arrived at DreamWorker he had been unemployed for 3 months, with a 2 year old daughter and his grandmother to support. Despite having studied Electrical Engineering (N3) at Cape College, he had worked short term as a field marketer in the retail world. His dream was to be able to put his technical skills to the test.

Thabiso’s enthusiasm, warm smile and general air of willingness did not go unnoticed! When the office had a call from Packit Packaging looking for a young person to train as a repair technician, he jumped to mind.

His manager, Naasief Tape speaks most highly of him “We could see he had the right attitude and was really keen. Thabiso is a guy who is not scared to dirty his hands. He is “not afraid to learn, to try things, to ask questions. We love having him on the team.”

And Thabiso? “I have dreamed of a job like this. I am able to apply what I have learned, but I can learn and grow so much more doing this work. I am really happy for the opportunity. Thank you DreamWorker, thank you Packit!”
