VERTO's Women in Trades - She nailed it: Strategies for thriving in the Trades

She nailed it: Strategies for thriving in the Trades; real stories about overcoming challenges to achieve your goals. Each tradie commenced at different stages of their lives, and they have all had different challenges to overcome to become successful. Listen to Felicity, Jacinta, Jill & Kristy's journey and be inspired by their stories and achievements!

“The CWCC successfully secured a couple of key contracts in the 1990s and early 2000s which saw the organisation grow and expand into other areas of New South Wales, including the region’s largest Job Network contract as well as delivering apprenticeship services in the Western and Hunter/ North Coast regions,” Mr Maxwell said.

In 2012, Central West Community College was rebranded VERTO Limited – with VERTO being Latin for ‘transform’.

During 2021, The VERTO Group grew again with the acquisition of Riverina Community College in Wagga Wagga, followed by the strategic acquisition of not-for-profit employment and community services provider, Campbell Page earlier this year.

With the acquisition of Campbell Page, The VERTO Group has a truly national footprint with 135 locations and a workforce comprising more than 500 employees.

“It’s a privilege to lead an organisation with a strong legacy of making a difference in local communities, and I know that the other members of our leadership team and our hard-working staff are delighted to be celebrating this milestone in 2023,” Mr Maxwell said.

“I thank everyone who has supported the journey for the last four decades, and everyone who will help us continue our important work for many years into the future.”
