 Access to a real future for Uncle Tolly

Malcolm Walker (Uncle Tolly) left with workmates he is mentoring

Despite a history of working in the mines in Pathways to the Pilbara and then as a Reach Out Officer with Real Futures, Uncle Tolly was finding it hard to get work.

The team at Real Futures knew he would be a great asset for any company, so spent some time with him, helping him overcome a few barriers.

When we asked Regional Renewables to give him a go, they did, and now Uncle Tolly is working full-time as a medium-rigid truck driver.

Uncle Tolly is a well-known and respected man in his community, always helping the young fellas. So it’s no surprise that in his new job at Regional Renewables, Uncle Tolly is helping on site, too, working with his Mob (nephews and other family), mentoring the younger men to promote a positive work environment.

A great worker

Uncle Tolly reminds us all of what makes a great worker:

  • work hard
  • show up on time
  • pay attention on the job
  • support your workmates.

Uncle Tolly is a great asset to the team at Regional Renewables and he’s proud to be working alongside his Mob, achieving together.
