Travis Santana and OAK Possability find their ideal trainee/ employer match through Gateway

Vacant IT Trainee Positon

Claire Saltmarsh from OAK Possability approached Bec Garbowski, one of our Business Consultant’s at MAS National/Business & Employment, interested in putting on an IT Trainee. After Bec explained our Gateway Services Claire was very keen to see if we could find someone for the position. Bec contacted a TasTafe teacher to see if she had any people in her pre-employment classes that were looking at becoming a trainee and also contacted some schools and colleges.

Great Candidate

Travis Santana was told about the position by the TasTafe teacher so Bec arranged for him to meet with Melissa Pursell from MAS National to be signed up into our Gateway Services. Travis was very keen to get employment in the IT industry. After Melissa met with Travis she thought he would be a great candidate for this position as he was very enthusiastic and had already commenced some training in the IT Industry, which would really help him to fit into this role very smoothly. Travis was also very polite and did everything that was asked of him.


Travis Santana’s resume was put forward to OAK Possability. He was then interviewed and was successful in gaining this position.

Travis was thrilled to have been given this opportunity and couldn’t wait to start.

Study time

Bec Garbowski has now signed Travis up under a Training Contract. He will undertake a Traineeship in Certificate IV in Information Technology with NDA Computing Pty Ltd.

Travis has taken on his role really well and the Certificate IV will help him progress even further. He is fitting into the workplace and has even stepped in to help out on reception while staff members were on leave.

Congratulations Travis on your great achievement in gaining this position. We wish you all the best with this role and with your training for your Certificate IV in Information Technology.
