Firstly, we’d like to welcome Marty Moore, our new Operations Manager at Future Energy Skills. As part of making him feel welcome, we recently asked Marty to share some insights about himself!
Tell us a few lines about yourself.
I started as an Apprentice Electrician in 1982 and spent 35 years working on major construction sites around Melbourne. In the last 10 years or so I made the transition to education and held positions with a few RTOs in Melbourne. For the last four years I have held a management position with one of these Institutes before taking up this role with Future Energy Skills.
What does your job entail?
As the Operations Manager I look after the day-to-day operations of the FES Assessment Centre and help, in conjunction with ESV, Industry groups and training providers to moderate and validate the LEA assessments and the assessment process.
What’s a typical day like for you?
The good thing about this role is that there is not really a typical day. Every day is different.
Favourite memory from your work life?
I can remember being a young Apprentice working on the Rialto building sixty storeys up looking at the view with only a handrail between me and the edge of the building.
What’s a common question you get from candidates?
Did I pass??? Is by far the most common question any of us get at FES.
What do you like most about your job here at Future Energy Skills?
Licencing Assessments are usually a massive deal for the Candidates and huge relief when they pass. I like being part of the process in providing a comfortable, inclusive environment to give them the best opportunity to achieve their goals.
What do you like to do when you’re not at FES?
A lot of my time is taken up with coaching a Woman’s Soccer team down the Peninsula.
I also have a boat and enjoy a bit of fishing.
Ok, last one – what’s a fun fact about yourself that many people may not know?
I was born in Glasgow and came to Australia when I was four and still support the mighty Glasgow Celtic F.C.
