More than 160 Indigenous Australians have been employed at Linfox in the last two years and the number keeps on growing, the company says.

Forklift driver Kyle Terry is the latest member to have completed Linfox’s Indigenous Employment Program (IEP).

He now works at Arnott’s national distribution centre in NSW after completing a course in competency and productivity in warehouse operations in April.

Terry is one of 167 Indigenous people to have landed a job at Linfox since the program was launched in 2010.

He was buddied with an experienced operator during training, which has helped boost his confidence behind the wheel, Linfox Operations Manager Matthew Peachey says.

"He quickly picked up training and he’s now performing all forklift duties successfully," Peachy says.

Those who complete training are guaranteed placement upon graduation, he adds.
