Have you got a job for me?
JEFF Tofts is coming to Hervey Bay and he's bringing some company with him.
Mick, his canine companion, will also be making the move from Brisbane with his owner and Jeff is hoping his dog won't be a hindrance to his job hopes.
“I was ill for the last four years but I am back to full health now. I have a dog as a form of therapy.
“I'm looking for a driving job where I can bring a well-behaved, well-trained, clean companion with me.”
Jeff has 28 years experience as a driver of tour buses and semi-trailers and is aiming to return to the industry on the Fraser Coast. He holds a construction Blue Card and a traffic controller's ticket.
When the 50-year-old visited the Fraser Coast last week to set the wheels in motion ahead of his move to the Bay, he was disappointed to discover the cane crushing season was near its end.
A Darwin native, Jeff lived in Hervey Bay in the early 1980s when he drove for Sid Melksham. His son was born at Maryborough hospital during this period of his life.
“I've always enjoyed going to Hervey Bay.
“I don't want to move until I have a job. I'm a proficient driver.
“I'm a pretty sensible sort of a bloke. If someone is willing to give me a chance, I'll do a good job and won't let them down.”
