Elizabeth, 30, is a primary carer parent and has been out of the workforce since 2008. She was ready to start work, but she was unsure how she would get it. So, she entered the atWork Australia office in Devonport, Tasmania for a helping hand.
When entering the office, she was met with Sommer, her Job Coach. Within her initial consultation the pair discussed Elizabeth’s employment history, her current situation, her skills and employment goals. This allowed Sommer to create a tailored job plan that was catered to Elizabeth’s needs, wants and goals.
It was within this appointment that Elizabeth highlighted that she has no license, limited family support and no recent employment history. Sommer suggested Elizabeth to participate in the Ready, Set, Go program in order to develop job ready skills. Elizabeth agreed and completed this program.
With new job skills, a job plan and updated resume, Sommer got right to work in finding the perfect sustainable position for her.
Within a few weeks, Sommer found a great position for Elizabeth and mentioned this to her. She was thrilled by the position, so she put her resume forward.
After a successful job interview with the potential employer, Elizabeth was offered the position as a housekeeper and was eager for her first day. The atWork Australia team in Devonport then assisted Elizabeth in getting her some new clothes for work, to ensure she felt and looked the part.
Elizabeth has been in this position for over two months and is loving it as much as she did on the first day. Sommer and the team in Devonport have noticed a significant change in her confidence since her first appointment. She is thriving in her new position.
Elizabeth has explained that she has enjoyed the tailored support she has received from atWork Australia, even after getting the job.
“Elizabeth is a very eager and capable client who was seeking reliable employment, with atWork Australia’s help and guidance she was able to obtain a role that she enjoys and motivates her every day.” – Sommer, Job Coach.
