Juan (61) is living with Shoulder and Upper Arm Disorder. He was experiencing difficulties finding employment and was looking for a forklift role suitable for his health condition and where he would not be required to continuously lift.
Juan visited his local atWork Australia office in Narellan, NSW. Here, he met Job Coach Nicole, who assisted Juan with his job search. This process involved communicating with employers on modifications required for him to be able to thrive in his forklift operator role.
Juan was motivated throughout the job seeking process and secured a role as a Forklift Operator. Nicole further assisted Juan with his work uniform, and fuel to get him to and from work.
Job Coach Nicole says: “Juan enjoys work and just needed some support to help him find a suitable and sustainable role. He is thriving in his new role and has had no issues. He was so excited that he has secured the role, he couldn’t wait to start his new job.”
Juan’s new role is with a logistics company where he operates a forklift and inspects equipment to ensure safety.
Nicole says: “Juan was so thankful to me and atWork Australia for supporting him in his employment journey.”
Everyone has strengths they can bring to the workplace and all individuals can add value. Juan’s story is a reflection that work’s for everyone.
“Nicole was great help. I was very happy with her work ethic, and she also assisted me with work uniform and fuel. I am very happy with Nicole and atWork Australia.” – Juan, DES Client, NSW
