atWork Australia offers many different types of assistance completely tailored to each individual person and their circumstances.
Gabby’s story shows how persistence and determination can lead to incredible results – results that are particularly impressive as she lives with depression and hypertension.
Gabby had been working in the aged care industry for over 15 years and was very dedicated to looking after others. But the constant strain of the job took its toll on both her mental and physical health.
Gabby eventually left her job in order to look after herself and her own health. When she was feeling well enough to find ongoing employment, Gabby struggled to identify options for her career other than aged care.
Through atWork Australia, Gabby was introduced to Job Coach, Kara, who set about learning everything she could about Gabby.
Together they met and discussed all types of ways Gabby could discover a new industry. They chatted about courses and qualifications that might help Gabby change career direction.
Kara coached Gabby in interview skills and job applications, and Gabby remained positive and focussed on finding a new role.
Gabby persisted in her search and was successful in gaining an interview as a support worker. After her interview and anxious about the outcome, Gabby asked if Kara would contact the employer on her behalf to discuss how it went.
After explaining to the employer all about atWork Australia and the assistance provided to job seekers and employers, they happily agreed to give Gabby a go.
Gabby was super excited to hear she had secured the role.
“atWork Australia has been fantastic and the support I have received from start to finish has been incredible,” she says. “I am now absolutely loving my job and what I do.”
Kara says, “Gabby was always very pleasant, well presented and friendly, making her an ideal employee. Plus, she was so motivated to find work.”
