Showtime Production Services has been servicing the entertainment industry for over 25 years. Located in Moorebank, they specialise in Professional Audio, Intelligent/Stage Lighting, Trussing, Staging, Vision, Control Systems and related products.
They are a highly valued member of the MWLP Linking Youth Work Placement Program offering up to five students every week the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ experience.
Year 11 and 12 students who are studying Entertainment as part of their Higher School Certificate get to test lights, connect and test speakers, bump in and bump out, roll cable, assist with the setup of the show, prep and deprep jobs, load and unload vehicles.
Director, Peter Fimmano, says “It is a great opportunity for us to gauge the student’s interest and for them to connect to the industry. We have had some really good students and have recruited both permanent and casual staff from the program. It is a good way to find up-and-coming talent and if we don’t employ them, we often see them working in other areas of the industry.” (more…)
MWLP provides a brokerage service that allows some 6,800 HSC students to participate in two weeks of learning in the workplace during Years 11 & 12.
MWLP is a specialist in the provision of career and transition support services, targeting young people and related stakeholders and influencers (including parents, business and industry, educators and training providers and the wider community).
MWLP has over 20 years’ experience in engaging with business and industry across a broad range of industry areas and has extensive employer networks.
“You can make a difference in someone’s life just by mentoring them for one week. It will help you and the student, grow and mature as an individual. We have had some excellent students resulting in us hiring four waitresses, one kitchen hand and multiple apprentices – all from the MWLP program.”

“It’s a good opportunity to see the calibre of Macarthur’s youth. We get to screen those with potential that will ultimately benefit the company. The students are encouraged to ask lots of questions to assess whether this industry is right for them. It’s a win-win situation.”
