Congratulations to Jamaica Blue Macarthur Square who has won MWLP’s Business of the Month.
Jamaica Blue Macarthur Square promises to consistently deliver memorable and satisfying café experiences, with a genuine smile, to all their loyal customers.
They also provide Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Hospitality as part of their HSC, with memorable and satisfying work placements.
Why do they do it? Owner/Manager, Dean Kallas, enjoys the extra pair of hands and the opportunity to assess future staff in the week the students are with him.
Dean says “It is definitely the best way to interview. The qualities I look for are punctuality, a good work ethic, how students interact with the customers and staff and a great attitude. I get a sense of their employability skills and the students have the chance to decide if Hospitality is for them.” (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.”
