Pornthip (49) is from Thailand and has been unemployed for 2 years. Pornthip’s last job was in cleaning and she was very keen to find work as a Kitchen Hand.

Pornthip experienced physical and language/communication barriers. She reached out to atWork Australia in Brookvale where she met Job Coach Kylie.

Kylie assisted Pornthip with discussing roles that may be suitable for her and aligning them with her interests. They decided to look for jobs in a kitchen rather than cleaning jobs as they may be less physical. Kylie saw an advertisement for a Kitchen Hand online and was able to secure a Kitchen Hand role for Pornthip.

atWork Australia assisted in purchasing clothes and shoes to assist Pornthip in her new role. Kylie further assisted Pornthip in her interview skills.

When Kylie told Pornthip about her new role she was “over the moon.”

Kylie says: “Pornthip is a very lovely and humble lady. She is very grateful.”

Pornthip says: “I am happy to say that Kylie has been wonderful to deal with, best I have encountered in the industry so far. Her work ethic and devotion are admirable. She has placed me in a role that is well aligned with my skillset and I am enjoying my new job.”

Pornthip’s new employer is very excited to have her onboard and wished her all the best.

Pornthip adds: “Thanks for all your work in helping me. Much appreciated.”
