Two months after returning from a working holiday in the UK, 20-year-old Amelia was finding it difficult securing employment. Originally, Amelia worked as a Nanny both in the UK and here at home in Victoria, but a medical condition prevented her from returning to similar roles.
Amelia was struggling to find employment outside of her experience, and needed further assistance to widen her job search opportunities. This is when she registered and commenced with atWork Australia in Richmond and met Tim, her Disability Employment Services Job Coach.
Together Amelia and Tim, explored the various employment options available that would suit her specific circumstances. They decided to focus upon administration positions within the health industry.
Tim helped Amelia prepare for the job searching process by building her confidence and self-esteem to apply for positions, adjusting her resume to suit and discussing interview techniques.
Within weeks, Amelia was offered a role as a Junior Receptionist at IPAR, a leading provider of injury prevention, injury management and return to work services in Australia.
Amelia was both relieved and excited at the prospect of starting a new career within the health industry.
“I would like to thank Tim for referring me to the position and all his help,” said Amelia.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Amelia,” said Tim. “I believe she will do very well in this position and grow within the organisation. I wish her all the best.”
