‘MacGyver girl’ matches up

Lizzie Walters had never worked in freight before, but thanks to E tū Job Match has found a position she’s loving getting to grips with.

In March 2020, we launched E tū Job Match, an online tool, and we have continued to grow and improve the services it provides.

From basic beginnings, E tū Job Match is now an informative platform for both job seekers and employers that lists job ads and training information, and connects job seekers with E tū for help with CVs and cover letter writing – all for free.

A former cleaner, Lizzie says she considers herself a “MacGyver girl”, having worked in many industries over the years, including building, painting, and plastering, but was worried about finding a new role.

“They helped with my CV – sent it to me and asked if there was anything I wanted to add and then put it up online. I was getting heaps of offers.”

Lizzie says she firmly believes Job Match was a factor in her success: “If it weren’t for those two ladies [at E tū Job Match], I wouldn’t be where I am now.”

Almost 1500 job seekers have registered on the site so far, with around 80% of those looking for jobs from the aviation industry.
