November 2015 Campbelltown Catholic Club

Congratulations Campbelltown Catholic Club on winning this month’s prestigious MWLP’s Business of the Month Award.

Campbelltown Catholic Club is a leader within the Hospitality industry in the Macarthur region, offering services in food and beverage, gaming, fitness and leisure, hotel accommodation, conferencing, events, exhibitions and entertainment.

The Club provides Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Hospitality as part of the Higher School Certificate, with week long work placements.  In fact they have offered placements to two students every week for over fifteen years.  What an amazing contribution to assist Macarthur’s young people!

According to Head Chef, Paul Rifkin “It gives them an opportunity to experience real catering operations first hand and  gives us a chance to find future employees with a great attitude and a desire to work in catering.  I enjoy discovering students who have become apprentice chefs here and qualified as chefs; then spread their wings and achieved scholarships overseas to further their opportunities.”

Paul adds “I find the MWLP Work Placement Program the best way to discover talent.   I look for a glint in the eye, someone sitting on the edge of their seat.  You can teach skill but you can’t teach attitude.”

Paul has a message for businesses not yet involved in the MWLP program “Be part of building young people in a positive and uplifting environment.  Enjoy the discovery of young talent and developing them into successful members of the community and workforce.”

As this month’s outstanding winner, Campbelltown Catholic Club will receive profiling in the Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly editions of the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on and thanks to United Cinemas Narellan, Grand Seating movie tickets.
