Duane is 61 and lives with health conditions and anxiety. After two years of unemployment, Duane was supported to create his own path, and start his own business.
When he first connected with Pamela, he was working through his health conditions and had low confidence he would find employment to suit his barriers.
atWork Australia supported Duane to work on improving his self esteem and confidence.
Meanwhile, Duane and Pamela started talking thought Duane’s employment goals and what kinds of work excited him and what he was interested in.
Soon, Duane felt he had the confidence to follow his goals, and decided self employment was the way forward.
Pamela supported Duane to organise his ABN number, and financially assisted with work related clothing including personal protective equipment and boots that he would need.
“I have noticed a big change in Duane. From his appearance to his confidence and attitude. It has been great to see his transformation and we look forward to seeing his progress,” said Job Coach Pamela.
Duane was so thankful the atWork Australia team were patient with him and gave him time to explore roles and careers that would suit him, while supporting his health and wellbeing.
“You have helped me so much by being so understanding of my situation and helping me turn my ideas into work,” said Duane.
