Ross came to the Warragul office of atWork Australia already employed; however, the inconsistency of casual hours was limiting his ability to support himself and live independently.

Ross was so keen to find consistent, full-time employment, he was willing to move locations if necessary. atWork Australia Job Coach, Carol didn’t think he would need to move, they just needed to work together to find the right job for Ross.

During Ross’s first few appointments with Carol, they discussed his skill set to define the types of work that Ross was able and willing to do. They also updated his résumé to better reflect his abilities and very soon a fantastic opportunity was presented to Ross.

Drouin Concrete Pipes & Products offered Ross a work trial as a labourer and the rest, as they say, is history.

“Ross was thrilled to bits and beaming from ear to ear,” says Carol. “He now had hope of living independently again.”
