Like many Australians, Robin was feeling the pressure of earning a low income and the increasing costs of living. When Robin came to atWork Australia’s Workforce Australia office in Albany, WA, he had been unemployed for nearly twelve months and the constant financial strain was impacting on his anxiety.
When Robin commenced with atWork Australia, he was supported by his Job Coach, Jasper. Jasper outlined how atWork Australia could support Robin on his employment journey. Together, Robin and Jasper began looking for suitable employment opportunities in Albany. It was not long before Robin secured an opportunity, he was excited and eager to start working immediately.
Jasper continued supporting Robin once he had started work. Robin bought to Jasper’s attention that he was still finding it extremely difficult to live on his low income, as he was receiving little to no shifts as he was a casual employee. Robin expressed he was eager to find alternative employment, with longer hours and better pay.
Once again, Robin and his Job Coach, Jasper, started looking for alternative employment and were looking into opportunities in the mining industry. Robin was taking a proactive approach and was very diligent with his job searches. Soon Robin was rewarded for his efforts as he found a position as a Kitchen Hand with Sodexo.
With Jasper’s support, Robin applied and was successful in securing the position with Sodexo. Since beginning his new role, Robin feels he has more control of his personal finances and his overall wellbeing has improved. Robin’s Job Coach, Jasper, said, “When I started working with Robin, he was a bit stressed and anxious about applying for jobs. Now he is working full time for a mining company as a cook. He has shown exceptional effort to secure this opportunity for himself.”
atWork Australia’s support has helped Robin to increase his confidence and self-belief in his ability. Robin’s story shows that with the right support and personal motivation, he was able to create a brighter future and take control of his employment journey.
“Thank you for helping me to improve my finances and my lifestyle,” said Robin.
