For 17-year-old James Davies "coming back home to work" was always the plan. "I finish school in two weeks, which I have been doing from The Academy in Melbourne, and it was just always the plan to come back home and work," he said.
"When the opportunity to work at LS Precast came up I just jumped at it because it is a local company and I have some mates I will be working with there."
James said having experience working on the family farm would help him enter the workforce. "But the recruitment drive is open to everyone, that is what is great about this opportunity," he said.
