I have used Lisa and Amanda from Golden West to fill the issues I had with finding staff especially with Jobkeeper. They are very professional and go out of there way to ensure all my requirements and issues are dealt with. I would recommend them to any employer to find and manage staff. Lisa now handles my trainees and she goes above and beyond to ensure everything is done. I am very happy with her service.

We have been training apprentices through Golden West for approx. 7 years now and have found Nikki and the team very efficient and good to deal with. Their dedication to looking after the apprentices admin and technical training has made it much easier for us to concentrate on the practical aspect of their apprenticeship.
