Congratulations Ally! Maitland Young Citizen of the Year Nominee

Meet Ally, a member of our Mai-Wel Labourforce Solutions (MWLFS) Business Development (BD) team, who has received a nomination for Maitland Young Citizen of the Year! This award is given to showcase a member of the community under the age of 25 who has contributed to the advancement or wellbeing of Maitland, and at age 24, Ally’s nomination stems from both her personal and professional dedication to our community.

As President of the local Business Network International Group, Ally presides over the group every Thursday morning from 6:30am to 10:30am, supporting her members to grow and develop their businesses and their connections in the local community. Ally takes great pride in being the President of this group, which involves significant preparation, dedication and commitment.

Ally’s dedication to support businesses in the Maitland community continues in her day-to-day role within the BD team at MWLFS, where she works daily with businesses in the Maitland community to foster an inclusive culture and help less advantaged job seekers achieve their employment goals. Ally dedicates her time to truly get to know our job seekers, who have varying forms of disability, as well as disadvantaged youth, in order to help them overcome whatever barriers to gaining employment they may encounter. Ally will then reach out to local businesses and create opportunities and connections that are mutually beneficial to both the job seeker and the employer.

During 2020, Ally contributed to supporting over 300 disadvantaged, disabled, or vulnerable members of our community to achieve their employment goals, simultaneously building cultural awareness within our local business community and supporting them with their recruitment needs.

Ally is a kind-hearted individual who has proven at 24 years of age that she truly cares for both the disadvantaged individuals and local businesses in our community. For this reason, we think Ally is a fantastic candidate for Maitland’s Young Citizen of the Year and we wish her the best of luck with her nomination!

The Maitland Citizen of the Year Awards ceremony will be held on Australia Day (26 January) and will be live streamed on the Maitland City Council website.
