Michael stands with his Job Coach Tanja, his quote reads " atWork Australia helped me find work that was suitable and meaningful to me"

55-year-old Michael lives with a mental health condition.

As part of his condition, Michael finds it challenging to socialise.

When he came to atWork Australia’s Disability Employment Services in Leongatha, Victoria, and started working with his Job Coach, Tanja, he wanted support to find work that would work for him.

Michael has limited computer skills and currently relies on public transport to get to work, although having his car registered was a goal for Michael.

Taking all this information and Michael’s wishes into account, Tanja worked with Michael to identify types of work that would be meaningful to him.

Michael decided cleaning would be something that interested him. So, Tanja helped Michael to draft a resume tailored to that industry and they organised a police check and working with children check, which is often needed in cleaning roles.

Tanja then got to work calling employers and seeing if Michael might be a good fit for them.

It wasn’t long before Michael had successfully landed a role.

Michael is now saving up to have his car roadworthy and registered to provide himself with even more independence.

“atWork Australia helped me find work that was suitable and meaningful to me,” said Michael.
