Our Staff

We currently have four staff at the LTC:

Jillian Dielesen, Chief Executive Officer

Jillian Dielesen

Jillian has a strong background in training and industry, having spent 10 years running her own small business before working as a lecturer at Challenger TAFE for 7 years. She then moved to the Light Manufacturing Industry Training Council as Executive Officer, where her knowledge of industry needs and training was invaluable.

Since joining the LTC in 2009, Jillian has provided strategic advice on the current and future training needs of the Transport and Logistics industries to the Department of Training and Workforce Development and the State Training Board.

She is responsible for ensuring that any training developed nationally is appropriate for the State and meets industry’s needs. She is also responsible for ensuring that the Transport Industry has a voice in determining the future workforce development needs of the State.

Jillian’s extensive background in working with the VET system on both a State and National level, combined with her experience with industry, makes her a perfect candidate to identify skills development requirements for the transport and logistics industry and develop strategies to address them. Apart from Jillian’s strategic activities at the LTC, she will also be focussing on the Maritime, Stevedoring and Ports sectors.


Rachael Davidson, Project Officer

Rachael joined the Logistics Training Council in February 2017. She has worked in the vocational education and training (VET) sector for a number of years, most recently as the Project Manager for Sport and Recreation at FutureNow – Creative and Leisure Industries Training Council, and prior to that, as an Administrative Assistant at South Regional TAFE in Bunbury. She looks forward to working with the team to improve the workforce capacity of the industries under the LTC’s coverage.

Rachael’s main focus areas are road transport and logistics.


Michael Taremba, Project Officer
