Benjamin has recently moved to Australia from the Philippines. After moving around Australia several times, he landed in Warrawong, New South Wales, with his family.
Benjamin outlined that he was looking for a full-time position that allowed him to financially support his children and elderly mother, as this was the very reason he moved to Australia several years ago.
With a passion for the construction industry, Benjamin was determined to find a role for him in the industry.
With English not being Benjamin’s first language and not having many years of industry experience, he found it difficult to find a role on his own. He was looking forward to gaining some professional assistance on this journey.
Together, Emma and Benjamin worked on perfecting a resume and cover letter to appeal to potential employers. They also worked on interview skills and how Benjamin can put his best foot forward.
Emma found several suitable positions within the industry, but one position in particular stood out to Benjamin – a role at a local pipe manufacturer. Emma put him forward for this position. The employer was impressed by Benjamin and asked him to come into the office for an interview.
With great success, Benjamin was offered the position as a full-time forklift operator after only four-weeks with our services.
In preparation to start work, atWork Australia provided him with a brand-new work shirt.
Benjamin has now been in this role for eight-weeks and now works closely with our InWork Support team to ensure that he has the support, if he needs it.
Benjamin is so grateful for all the support he has received from Emma and the atWork Australia team in Warrawong in their short time together. He appreciated the tailored support that he received on his employment journey.
“I could not be happier for Benjamin. I am so proud of him for giving it his all and working hard every single day in his new role” – Emma, Job Coach.
Benjamin was very determined to find a role and was willing to do whatever it took to get there. This was evident from day one up until he gained employment.
” I am very grateful for my Job Coach helping me get this great job. I am very happy to go to work every day. I am much happier and feel more secure with life after securing this job” – Benjamin, Workforce Australia client.
