A hospitality business owner for almost 40 years, Stan (60) from Rosemeadow, experienced difficulties with securing employment after his business closed around the time of the Covid19 pandemic.

Stan experienced personal loss due to the closure of his business and had language barriers. He believed that it would be difficult for him to secure a job at his age.

He contacted atWork Australia in Airds for assistance and here he met Job Coach, Renai, who heled him identify his interests and brainstorm roles in line with his interests. Renai also worked with Stan so he could obtain the relevant qualifications such as the NDIS check and a First Aid Certificate.

Renai was able to secure a support worker position for Stan at AFEA. Renai says: “Stan was in disbelief. He was shocked that anyone would want him and was super proud and excited to tell his children.”

Stan says: “I have always been appreciative of all the help and assistance Renai provided.”

Renai also adds: “Stan has come a long way since we first met. He has surprised me with his determination. It has been such an honor to assist Stan on his journey.”

Stan says: “Renai believed in me and helped me achieve things I never thought I would.”
