Jobseeker Testimonials

“Honestly I wish my apprenticeship didn’t have to come to an end, thanks for all the work involved. ATEP ensured I was never without a job and never had any hiccups. ATEP should hire sub contractors so I can stay with you guys! Thanks very much again and hopefully I will hire apprentices off you in the future.” Daniel T., Carpenter 2018

“I appreciate all the help ATEP and especially Mel, my Employment Services Consultant have given me over the past few years as an apprentice carpenter. I will be recommending yourself and services should the opportunity arise. Thanks ATEP.” Paris Larman, Carpenter

“Joining ATEP was the smartest thing I have done . Mel really took time to get to know me and put me forward for jobs that suited my skills & personality. Unlike other recruitment agencies, ATEP placed me according to my ability and potential rather than placing me in similar positions I had held in the past. I have been in my current position for 1 year now and with the assistance of Mel, I have successfully completed my traineeship, am now fully employed and have started the journey on my dream career. I highly recommend Mel as a professional, diligent, and extremely competent consultant who helped me find the perfect position for me and identified the key criteria I was looking for in my next role. I am very lucky to have the constant support of Mel/ATEP. It is a brilliant to have the assistance of an agency that genuinely wants you to progress and succeed in any career you choose!” Aimee Grinter, Customer Contact

“I applied for an ATEP apprenticeship in June 2010 and I have since commenced a plumbing apprenticeship.  As I am 34 years old, I was expecting to find it difficult to get an apprenticeship; however after an interview with ATEP where I explained what I was after in a job, it only took them two weeks to find me a host employer who was willing to take on someone of my age. I am currently doing my 2nd year and I’m really enjoying it. ATEP has been fantastic and their support is great.  The host employer they found for me has been terrific. As an apprentice I am very happy with ATEP and would definitely recommend them to anyone wishing to undergo an apprenticeship.”
“The ATEP staff are so friendly and have supported me the whole way through”.
Andrew J., Moorooduc VIC, 34 years of age.

“I have been employed by ATEP since 2010 and am completing a Tourism and Guiding school based traineeship as part of my VCE school studies. Before finishing my first 12 months I had successfully completed a Certificate II nationally recognized qualification and am now well on my way to completing the Certificate III level in line with my Year 12 school year. The part time job opportunity was exactly what I was looking for and I now have part-time work with two of the businesses next year and a real understanding of what the tourism industry could offer me towards a further career path when I complete my schooling in late 2011.
Holly O., Mornington VIC, 17 years of age.

“In January 2008 I started a Carpentry apprenticeship with ATEP and my allocated Host Employer and am now in my fourth and final year. I am loving the experience and keep learning new things every day. ATEP provide heaps of support and having my work placement officer regularly come out on site helps meet any needs I may have as an employee.
“I am rapt to be an ATEP apprentice and impatient to be a qualified Carpenter in a few months and one day run my own empire!”
Tom H., Hampton VIC, 22 years of age.
