Former Afl Star Michael O'Loughlin Kicks Off Goal 40 In The Fastlane

Sydney Premiership player and now Swans Academy coach Michael O’Loughlin was in Darwin today to launch the Goal 40 project – a partnership between Coates Hire and Aboriginal Recruitment Training (A.R.T), to recruit 40 Indigenous jobseekers over the next year.

While in Darwin O’Loughlin met Coates Hire Racing’s Nick Percat, who took the former AFL star for a hot lap of Hidden Valley Raceway in his V8 Supercar.

Goal 40 aims to provide Indigenous job ready candidates the opportunity to embark on a fully supported career with Coates Hire.

The program will work closely with Aboriginal and local community organisations, job service providers, secondary high schools and registered training organisations to recruit potential candidates to undertake the required skill audit and/or training program that will deliver them into a career ready path.

Stepping from the V8 Supercar O’Loughlin said: “That was awesome. It was my first time in a car with a professional driver and a car with so much power behind it. He did an amazing job and I look forward to following his career".

Speaking about Goal 40, he said: "I am really happy to be supporting Coates Hire and what they are doing. Goal 40 is a great initiative.

"Forty jobs for indigenous employment seekers is a great program and they (Coates Hire) are prepared to roll their sleeves up and really help support the people and A.R.T. Two great companies coming together to support indigenous people, which ultimately is going to help not only our people, but also our country".

Comparing the ride to his AFL career O'Loughlin added: "The adrenalin running through the veins of kicking a goal in front of 80,00 people and rushing up to a corner at a couple of hundred kays, gave me that same feeling. The blood was pumping and it was exciting and I had a big smile on my face for the whole ride".

Coates Hire is Australia’s leading equipment hire company with over 230 branches Australia-wide and employing over 2,500 employees. Coates Hire supplies a broad range of markets including construction, mining, government, industrial and the specialised events sector.

A.R.T Employment Pty. Ltd. (ART) is an Aboriginal owned and managed Aboriginal recruitment, training and employment specialist.
