Facilitating successful participation through expert support
Emerging Community Leadership Program’ for the Department of Regional Development,
Green Skills have brought significant experience in facilitating community engagement and supporting our leadership for sustainability initiatives. With their extensive network of regional contacts across southern WA, they helped us to recruit program participants, and to co-facilitate the program’s adult-learning workshops. The program received positive feedback from program participants and its success was, in no small measure, due to the expertise and support that Louise and Dawn brought to this project.
Excellent services, completed on time, to budget, and to a high standard
Ecojobs Services have been excellent, with works attended to and completed on time, to a high standard and within the quoted budget. The personnel are reliable, professional and prompt when working for the City. We have no hesitation in recommending Ecojobs for similar scope of works and looks forward to continuing to work with Green Skills services into the future.

Ecojobs performance always to high standard
Green Skills have provided services including manual and chemical weed control, Fire Access Way maintenance, pruning, watering, lake and bushland litter removal and cleanups. More recently they have provided temporary personnel under the WALGA preferred supplier contract. Their performance has always been to a high standard in a range of tasks.
The personnel they have available are at or above the required level of knowledge, training and skills for the works requested. Their Team Leaders are professional and communication and administration requirements have at all times been to a high standard. I highly recommend Green Skills Inc based on my experience with them.
