Instructor Snapshot: Mitch
"Having started in November 2016, Mitch eventually decided to give up Air Conditioning and put 100% of his time into Lone Clothing Co. “I literally applied for every single market, all the pop ups I could do, hit up a few shopping centres, tried to get my finger in every hole I could to sort of get my name out there more." - HUNTERhunter
We are excited to work with Lone Clothing Co to deliver a placement that equips the next generation of workers with the skills they need for the future of work.
