From Joondalup, WA, Cheryl was willing to give any job a go. She had been unemployed for three-years and was looking to get back into the workforce.
Cheryl (65) had been looking for clerical work in the transport industry as she had 10+ years’ experience in that field. However, she found that no matter how many jobs she applied for; she was not hearing back. She believed her age was her biggest barrier.
Cheryl is resilient, hardworking, and determined; so, she turned to atWork Australia Joondalup for help to advocate on her behalf when it came to finding employment.
Cheryl was referred to the in-house Wellness Services to help with her confidence.
During her time meeting her Job Coach, Rylea, for appointments, Cheryl received a SMS from atWork Australia about a traffic control role through LGC Traffic Management. Cheryl called Rylea and said she was interested in the position.
Rylea supported Cheryl financially by paying for her traffic control training and ticket.
Cheryl was on her way to a new career.
Rylea provided financial support through fuel vouchers so that Cheryl could get to the work site, as well as providing the correct workwear to get her started.
Cheryl was determined and willing to give anything a go; Cheryl has never let her age stop her from pursuing a career.
“Cheryl was determined to work. She never let anything get in her way, especially not her age”
