2018 Trainee of the Year


Bradley Lloyd

Cert 4 in Business


Employed by Hansen Electric

Brad has come a long way in a short amount of time since joining Hansen Electric. His work as the company administrator has blossomed in so much more than either he or his employers would have imagined. He has become David and Sandy Neindorf’s “go to” person for so much more than the role he was originally employed. As a tech savvy millennial, he has become accustomed to introducing new ways of doing old tasks. He completed his Certificate IV in Business all while helping keep the busy Hansen Electric team on track and growing, taking charge of handling suppliers, sourcing rare parts, managing MYOB, conducting employee inductions, handling customer enquiries have all become part of his portfolio. David and Sandy said, Bradley came to us from Waikerie High School highly recommended and he has lived up to that promise.
