Brendan has been unemployed for several years and is living with Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety and Depression. He was finding it difficult to find the motivation to look for work especially due to an experience in his previous position.
Brendan says: “After researching different Disability Employment Service providers, I found atWork Australia and thought it looked very impressive online so after years of counselling and time to recover I decided to try atWork Australia and get back into the workforce.”
Brendan reached out to atWork Australia in Coffs Harbour. Here, he was connected with Job Coach Rani who was very helpful, welcoming, proactive and listened to Brendan. Rani found opportunities for him which suited his needs.
Rani worked with Brendan to build his confidence and secured an interview with Inspirations Paint Coffs Harbour. Brendan was very interested in this position and was successful in securing the role.
Brendan says: “Rani got me an interview with Inspirations Paint Coffs Harbour which was something I was very interested in and I got the job. I have been working there for a month and have been loving every minute of it. I have my motivation back and my self-esteem has improved. I feel a part of a great team in my new job, 5 weeks in currently.”
When Brendan’s Job Coaches told him about his new role he was “ecstatic.”
Rani says: “Brendan was nervous but eager and very ready to take the first step. He just needed support until he was ready to have a go at it alone.”
Brendan adds: “Thank you Rani and everyone from atWork Australia who were involved in helping me re-enter the workforce and finding me the perfect job. I hope I can inspire others to try and find their way back into the workforce and feel as good and as confident as I do now.”
