  • Head shot of Tony

    Tony Emmerton

    Houseman, Desert Gardens Hotel, Ayers Rock Resort

    ETC asked me if I would like to experience a week out at Ayers Rock Resort. I was a bit hesitant as it was such a long journey and I’d never been that far West in my life. But I took the leap of faith in July last year and I’ve never regretted coming out here. Thanks to the ETC crew I’ve found more skills, new direction in life and more opportunities than I can poke a stick at.

    ETC and NCAP helped me with my resume, application letter and interview skills. They also helped me to follow my passion by supporting me through a Certificate III in Aged Care course.
