atWork Australia changes the lives of thousands of people living with disability and those who require additional support, every single day. Workforce Australia client, Jennifer, is one of those people.
Jennifer, aged 54, came back to the atWork Australia Warrawong, NSW office after making the decision to reach out for additional support on her employment journey.
When Jennifer was introduced to her new Job Coach, Ryleigh, she was facing challenges with her mental health due to her working environment at the time. Jennifer lost her enjoyment for work and dreaded going into work each-and-every day.
From the moment that she walked in the doors of atWork Australia, Warrawong, she was determined to find a role that allowed her to enjoy going to work and allowed her to thrive.
Due to Jennifer’s past and her personal life, she did not have a positive mindset towards working but the team ensured her that she knew that the perfect position is out there for her, and they will not stop until they find it.
Ryleigh understood all the barriers that Jennifer was faced with and ensured that she felt comfortable and confident throughout her employment journey. We not only helped her mentally, but we also provided financial assistance. This ensured that her journey was as stress-free as possible.
Ryleigh worked with Jennifer to understand what she was looking for in her new job and organised interviews with potential employers that aligned to what she was looking for.
Jennifer was starting to feel more comfortable and confident in herself and started to attend interviews. Jennifer attended an interview at a local café and was successful. She was offered the position as a waitress.
Jennifer was very excited when Ryleigh called to advise her that she had obtained employment. “She came into the office later that week and you could not wipe the smile off her face. She was relieved that she can now enjoy going to work again”, said Ryleigh.
Jennifer is grateful for the assistance she was provided with by atWork Australia Warrawong. She is currently enjoying her new position in a local Wollongong Cafe.
Not only is Jennifer enjoying her new position, but her employer is also loving having her on the team. Giving her praise often.
Job Coach, Ryleigh states that “Jennifer worked really hard to obtain new employment and never gave up. I am happy to say she has obtained a job she enjoys going to each day and she should be proud”
