Single mother, Holly, started working with Job Coaches, Hollie and Mary, at the atWork Australia Shellharbour, NSW, office.
When they met, Holly was working casual and unreliable hours. As they got to know Holly, they talked about her employment goals.
She had a short-term goal of working regular hours to support herself and her family, and Mary learnt she had a long-term goal of working in childcare.
To support Holly with her short-term goal, they worked together to update her resume. They looked for roles near Holly’s home, so she had more time for her family and potential study without a long commute.
Holly landed a role at a nearby clothing retail store with regular and ongoing hours.
They then turned their focus to Holly’s long-term goal. Enrolling her in a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education, while atWork Australia financially supported Holly to purchase a laptop for her study.
“Holly is feeling confident of her future and ability to support her family,” said Job Coach Mary.
“She keeps me in the loop with her roster and reaches out for help if she needs it.”
Holly said, “I went from work as a Christmas casual, with fluctuating hours to working with an employer that provides consistent hours.”
“atWork Australia has been so helpful and have been so supportive.”
“You have provided a different level of independence financially for my family.”
