Disability Employment Services client, Troy was able to take his daughter to the movies for the first time in a long while, thanks to secure employment.
Troy lives with depression and anxiety along with lower limb and back pain. He was experiencing housing instability while he was unemployed, which was affecting his ability to spend time with his daughter.
When Troy started with atWork Australia in Morayfield, QLD, he was motivated to find work and was even returning rouge shopping trolleys in carparks as a hobby to keep busy.
Troy met Employer Engagement Consultant, Kaitlin, and when she heard of his commitment and motivation, she quickly called long-term atWork Australia employer partner Vivid Commercial Cleaning, to advocate on Troy’s behalf.
“Vivid is always on the lookout for motivated, passionate, and reliable staff members,” said Kaitlin.
“They are also very supportive of our client’s challenges. They alter their recruitment process to suit candidates we refer, match the hours to the client’s availability and even sometimes alter positions to suit.”
Through this supportive and flexible environment, Vivid Commercial Cleaning finds reliable and motivated employees.
“When I told Kaitlin about my shopping centre hobby, she started calling places for me to work at, and found me an awesome job that I really enjoy,” said Troy.
The atWork Australia team also supported Troy to purchase a phone and supported him with work related vouchers so he could put his best foot forward in his new role.
“atWork Australia’s support has been amazing. Kaitlin was very eager to find me work, and she did that on the spot before I left the office. I began the next day.”
Troy also participated in atWork Australia’s free Allied Health Service for extra support on his mental health.
While Troy has enjoyed his new role, his biggest success is now spending more time with his daughter.
