  • Thank you for allowing Greg Knobloch the time to present to our VET Induction Day.....The information contained in his OHS presentation was highly engaging and of utmost importance in preparing students for their upcoming work placements.

  • A HUGE thank you for organising the Try-A-Trade for our students. All three teachers have come back to school absolutely buzzing about what the boys achieved in those three days and what a fantastic program it is. They also said the trainer was amazing and worked so well with the boys.

Their staff are always well presented, reliable and professional. I absolutely trust Skill Hire to meet my needs and the needs of my catering clients, and will continue to utilize them for all of my kitchen and FOH staff outsourcing. Thanks Ben, Heidi and team!
