Without truck drivers, Australia stops. Kevin (62) has overcome many barriers but now provides a valuable contribution to the community by delivering fresh fruit and vegetables to local cafés and restaurants.
Kevin lives with health conditions such as Osteoarthritis and a recent knee replacement. He also recently moved to New South Wales from Western Australia.
He met with Job Coach Nicole at Narellan, atWork Australia for assistance looking for work.
“Kevin needed a role which wouldn’t add additional strain to his body, and with the recent move to NSW he needed to learn about the local area and the roles available nearby,” said Nicole.
“Kevin was keen to find something suitable and ongoing as he enjoys working.”
Together, Nicole and Kevin talked about what types of roles he was interested in and what roles would suit his capability.
With an MC Truck License in hand, Nicole started working with atWork Australia’s extensive employer network to find a suitable role for Kevin.
He soon landed a role delivering fresh fruit and vegetables to cafés and restaurants in the local area.
“I am extremely happy for Kevin and how he is going with his employment. I can’t wait to see how much he can achieve,” said Nicole.
Kevin is now enjoying his sustainable employment and wants to pass on his thanks to the team at atWork Australia Narellan.
“I can’t believe the support from the atWork Australia team. Nicole has been brilliant with her assistance in helping me gain employment,” said Kevin.
