47-year-old Disability Employment Services client, Daniel, has spent the past six years out of work recovering from a brain aneurysm and associated surgeries.
After a long recovery, Daniel was eager to return to work, so he contacted the atWork Australia team in Noarlunga, South Australia, for tailored assistance.
In his first appointment with his Job Coach, Katrina, he shared his health conditions and current working status. He expressed that he has handed his resume into a lot of local businesses with no success. He knew that if he was given a chance by an employer, they would be impressed with his drive and determination to succeed.
Katrina could also see how wonderful he is, and the determination he embodies because of his medical history and life story. She was looking forward to their journey together and finding the perfect position for him.
In following appointments, the pair worked on perfecting his resume and drilling down on what positions he would enjoy most, before they started contacting employers.
After sharing that he does not have a driver’s licence, Katrina was able to financially support him in purchasing a brand-new bike so that he could travel to work both efficiently and safely.
In no time at all, Katrina found a position that she felt was perfect for him, and after consulting Daniel and him being in agreeance, he was put to a work trial.
Just has Daniel suspected, they were impressed with his work ethic and skills, and offered him a casual position as a Production Worker.
He is forever grateful for Katrina and the support of atWork Australia, stating: “Thank you to Katrina and atWork Australia for giving me the opportunity to move forward. When I arrived, I had nothing, now I have a job.”
On this new phase of his journey, he was financially supported in purchasing his work uniform for his brand-new position.
