When Keith came to atWork Australia for Workforce Australia services at the St Mary’s office, NSW, he bought along a wealth of experience. Keith is a former small business owner; for many years successfully running a handyman business. Due to the extensive lockdowns, Keith was forced out of work and unfortunately, he lost his business.
Keith believed that being mature age, he would find it difficult to find a job and he became concerned about his future. Keith became anxious and was experiencing depression.
Keith feared he would struggle to find work as he had limited IT skills and thought the labor market was still recovering from the pandemic. Christine assured him he would be able to find a job, as he had valuable transferable skills and an exceptional work ethic.
Christine began by helping Keith to create a resume and referred him to atWork Australia’s Wellness Services; empowering Keith to prioritise his health and wellbeing, as well as working to overcome barriers to employment.
Additionally, Christine referred Keith to new positions, where he was able to secure work trials. Keith kept a positive attitude and didn’t let setbacks deter him from moving forward.
With the support of atWork Australia’s Employer Engagement team, it was not long before Keith was referred to another role as a Field Asset Inspector with Aethon Aerial Solutions Australia. Keith was delighted to learn that he had been successful in securing this position.
This unique role allows Keith to travel across remote NSW and he is now enjoying the benefits of both work and travel. Keith said, “I am extremely happy in my new role. I thoroughly enjoy traveling to remote areas of NSW.”
This was a fantastic outcome for Keith, and he is now feeling more confident about his future.

“I am extremely happy with my new role ,” said Keith.
