Star St Albans Employment Consultant, Caitlyn Ngyuen, always goes above and beyond for her job seekers.
When more than 100 food production workers, mostly Vietnamese, were retrenched after PepsiCo-Sakata announced a sudden interstate relocation from Western Melbourne, Caitlyn’s bi-lingual skills came to the fore.
At the PepsiCo-Sakata – Redundant Worker Support Jobs Fair, Caitlyn was the conduit between the Department of Jobs and Small Business and the workers. Her translation of their concerns was reassuring to those facing an uncertain future.
“They were all upset and really confused,” Caitlyn said.
“Some of them understood what was happening but most didn’t. It brought a smile to their faces to be able to answer their questions in Vietnamese, listen to their concerns and explain how we can help them.
