Reena, 49, had faced barriers to employment, but with the support of her Job Coach has found suitable and sustainable work.
Reena has a medical condition that prevents her from working more than 15-hours per week and is also limited in her transport options.
Reena came to atWork Australia and was introduced to her Job Coach, Rozy, from Lalor, Victoria. When Rozy first met Reena, she was accompanied by her husband to all her appointments with atWork Australia; Reena lacked confidence and motivation in herself.
Once Rozy and Reena got to know each other, Rozy negotiated with Reena and her husband that Reena would attend appointments on her own to help build her confidence; Rozy provided support and motivation to Reena.
Reena’s low confidence meant that she jeopardised opportunities to work. However, her Job Coach never lost hope and kept Reena’s goal of employment in sight.
Rozy managed to help Reena secure employment; it was a job that made her happy and was only a 15-minute walk from home. Disappointingly, Reena was let go from this position due to Covid-19.
This made Reena lose her confidence again; she had lost all hope and was finding it really challenging to find motivation to leave the house each day.
Reena returned to her regular weekly appointments with Rozy. Working together, they broke down the barriers and Rozy organised another position with the different employer.
Reena felt comfortable and secure in that work environment; she felt she had the support she needed to be motivated to go to work each day.
Rozy negotiated a 15-hour work week for Reena, along with the preferred days and times within those hours.
Reena is happily working, and her employer is happy with her performance; she is a valued member of the team.
