What people say about us

SES has been great support to me. I’ve found the service to be consistent. They regularly check in with me to see how I’m going, always answering my questions. I’d like to thank Mick – he has been a huge help. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have this apprenticeship!


I have been dealing with Smart Employment (Mick) for roughly 3 months now.
In this time I have been extremely happy with them. Mick is easy to deal with and has made the whole process from beginning till now effortless. They have done a good job in screening to hire their workers, as my apprentice is hard working, smart and hasn’t complained once. Something that is rare to find theses days.

I’ve completed my entire apprentice with Smart Employment, and they have been forever consistent with work, kept me up to date with TAFE, they have responded quickly and been very helpful with any concerns I’ve had about work, TAFE and pay etc. Never letting me down! I’d highly recommend!
