Mount Gambier Refugee Employment Forum

“We are very happy,” Barazan said after their first week of employment. “We love our job.”
Barazan Zandnan and Abdulhamid Souro work in full-time positions at Vivid Glass, Windows and Doors in Mount Gambier. Greg Megaw, general manager of Group Training Employment (GTE), brought Peter Allen, general manager of Vivid Glass, Windows and Doors to the Mount Gambier MRC for a meeting to discuss prospective employees. Peter explained that he needed two full-time workers to start immediately due to the amount of work from the Government’s post-Covid builder’s grants. The MRC selected two Yazidi men, Barazan and Abdulhamid, who were offered the positions. They were very happy and will be trained in how to make aluminium window and door frames in the workshop with the prospect of later fitting the frames with glass and installing it on site.
