Meet Nick and Ben

Nick & Ben

Two mates who packed away their Army uniforms for the final time, and made the move last month from Brisbane to Perth to start their new careers with @Westrac as Diesel Mechanics.

Nick: “It’s a bit of a change….but not as daunting as I was led to believe. Everyone at the workshop has been helpful answering my 101 questions. There are plenty of opportunities here and I’m building on my trade knowledge every day, working on lots of different machines and really getting the brain ticking!”

Ben: “It’s been chaos and awesome all in one! While there’s some big differences in the day to day processes, there’s enough crossover that I feel confident doing the job and I can see a big future for me with WesTrac. Thanks to your team at Ironside for helping me manage the move across to Perth with my young family as smoothly as possible.”
