With an outgoing personality, Peter needed employment that would play to his strengths rather than focusing on the barriers that inhibited him.
From Newborough, Victoria, Peter, 33, had been unemployed for six months due to his interpersonal barriers. Peter joined atWork Australia and was introduced to Job Coach, Cameron who spent time with Peter to focus on building his social skills. Having a strong customer service background, Cameron suggested a casual role with the local IGA store would suit his personality and help build confidence. Peter was more than willing to undertake the necessary certifications for the role and to help position himself in a more favourable way with the hiring team.
Peter was always very positive and committed to finding employment; making it easier for Cameron to seek appropriate employment with the trust and knowledge that Peter would be very receptive to any role that was presented to him.
While Peter’s response to being offered the role at the IGA was understated, he has repeatedly told Cameron how much he is enjoying the work and how great the employer is to work for.
Peter and his partner both commented on how quickly Cameron found appropriate work; a testament to Peter’s commitment and eagerness.
Peter did not have much luck before coming to atWork Australia and is grateful to Cameron for his hard work and dedication.
Peter and Cameron continue to maintain a strong rapport even after placement. This has allowed Peter to maintain his confidence knowing he has the support there if he needs advice.
Cameron said, “Peter has been one of his most promising and exceptional Clients. I had a lot of confidence I would be able to place Peter into employment. I am glad to see he has maintained the confidence within himself too”.
