“Oliver did not have a good understanding of the job market. He just wanted support and through atWork Australia, Oliver received a tailored and personalised service,” said Yussuf.
Yussuf knew that Oliver would be a valuable employee if he found the right job with the right employer. Through coaching and mentoring, Yussuf continually encouraged Oliver to rebuild his self-confidence and make sure that he did not give up until the right job was found.
