GTES was formed in 1985 under the name Riverina Group Training Company. The original signatories to the Articles for the company include Wagga Wagga City Council, Finemores, and Hillis Ford.
The company was created in order to facilitate the employment of apprentices and trainees, making the system easier and more flexible for Riverina businesses.
In 2004 the company changed our name to GTES (Group Training and Employment Specialists), reflecting our operational diversification into geographic areas outside of the Riverina as well as offering general recruitment, labour hire and payroll services.
Today our company employs an average of 200 apprentices, trainees and labour hire people. We manage the employment and training of these people for over 100 business ranging from large multi-nationals right through to sole traders.
