Disability Employment Services client, Brittany, was finding it challenging to secure sustainable employment that both complemented and empowered her. She was very eager to get back into the workforce and the atWork Australia team in Bendigo, VIC, noticed this immediately.
Brittany has been in and out of work over the past few years due to experiencing workplace bullying. This was, in turn, what was triggering her anxiety and making these workplaces unsustainable for her mentally.
Brittany also lost her licence recently which only added more stress to her situation.
In her first appointment, Job Coach, Mark, and Brittany worked together to determine what jobs she was interested in. From there they were able to establish that she would be well-suited as a personal carer. Therefore, they created a plan suited to this goal.
Throughout her time with atWork Australia, Mark worked with Brittany on improving her mental health through their regular communications, both inside and outside their scheduled appointments.
Brittany attended every appointment with a positive attitude and always maintained great contact, which assisted Mark greatly in finding a position that Brittany would thrive in.
On top of Mark searching for jobs for Brittany, she was also sourcing her own interviews to ensure that no opportunity was left unanswered. Within no time she was invited to an interview with a potential employer. Brittany was thrilled.
The employer was very impressed with Brittany and as a result, she was offered the position as a Personal Carer.
When Mark broke the good news to Brittany, she was ecstatic. When she next entered the Bendigo office, she was smiling from ear to ear. She was so thankful and appreciative to Mark and the atWork Australia team in Bendigo.
Brittany is still in this role and thriving. Her employer states that she is so easy to work with and very helpful.
Mark is so happy for Brittany, saying that she has shown great determination in wanting work and has not let anything hold her back.
