A BAYSWATER Waves employee says an employment program helped him find a job and the ambition to buy a house.

Jack Reeve was hired by the City of Bayswater after completing work experience through the EDGE Employment’s Passport 2 Employment program.

Mr Reeve is working as a customer service trainee at Bayswater Waves, where he helps people use the gym and keeps equipment clean and tidy.

He recently started to learn how to use the point-of-sale system.

He urged people in a similar situation to join the program because of the support it offered.

“The best thing about working is the freedom and independence it gives me,” he said.

“Now that I’m working, I can see myself buying a house, getting married and being a dad.”

City chief executive Andrew Brien said the City was committed to creating an inclusive workplace.

“We want a workforce diverse in culture, age, ability and life experience,” he said.

“Jack has quickly become popular amongst gym members and his colleagues and I hope to see him enjoy a rewarding career with us.”

Applications are currently open for 2020.
