We profile recent Road to success graduates enjoying their new careers in road transport.

Helene Jensen-Selkirk began with KAM Transport in February 2022 and less than 12 months later, has graduated from the traineeship programme. She has completed the four micro-credentials as part of her on-the-job training, and is set to obtain her class 5 licence and will continue her online learning.

Helene was the second trainee Paul Fincham, branch manager, Wellington, and general manager Bill Bamber at KAM, took on. She is a valued and respected member of the wider team, many of whom were on hand to congratulate and celebrate with Helene when she graduated.

KAM is committed to bringing new drivers into the business. The company’s fleet was class 4 and 5 so they purchased a class 2 truck when they engaged with Road to success and employed their first trainee (Nadine who graduated last year). KAM has just employed a third trainee – Francois has joined the team as a class 2 driver and began his traineeship last month.

KAM is also purchasing a class 1 truck to enable the company to start new drivers earlier and grow them within their business – growing the pipeline and ensuring they will have a class 2 driver when Francois is ready to move to class 4.

Paul Fincham is working with Francois and overseeing his training. He and Bill are strong supporters of the traineeship and giving new drivers the opportunity to grow and progress through KAM Transport.

KAM has two trainees in the company’s Hawke’s Bay site who are training and enrolled in the traineeship micro-credentials.
