8 people from socially disadvantaged backgrounds living in the Koroipita community have been provided job opportunities by Aspen Medical.

Aspen Medical is the company managing Ba and Lautoka Hospitals.

Aspen Medical Fiji CEO Annette Owttrim says these opportunities are being provided under the companyโ€™s ambition to employ 20% of its non-clinical workforce for people with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Owttrim says Aspen Medical will continue to work with the communities to provide an opportunity for employment.

Owttrim adds it has been fulfilling to see these pioneers from Koroipita taking this opportunity with both hands.

Model Towns General Manager, Paul Forrest says they are elated about this partnership as it aligns with their overarching goal of providing pathways for disadvantaged families to advance into mainstream jobs and housing.
