Ben – tradition and confidence

22 August 2018

Ben is carrying on a family tradition of working in the book trade. With a friendly smile and professional approach, Ben prices stock and serves customers at the cash register at a bookshop in Sydney.

“I’m very independent and I’m very confident in the job that I do,” he says. “My colleagues thank me for the work that I do, which makes me really happy.”
