atWork Australia client, Timothy, said, “atWork Australia gave me the confidence to get back into the workforce. It has opened new doors that have previously been closed.”

For the past ten years, Timothy has put his personal needs a side and has been caring for a family member. Throughout this time, Timothy has worked odd jobs here and there, but due to his caring responsibilities, he has spent majority of the last decade being unemployed.

The time had come where Timothy needed to return to work. However, after such a long period of unemployment, as well as is own health concerns, he was lacking confidence and belief in his ability to find employment. Timothy was proactive and connected with atWork Australia’s Disability Employment Services team in Falcon, WA, to get tailored support on his employment journey.

When Timothy met his Job Coach, Jack, he shared that he had been unemployed for a long period of time. He had physical limitations and limited transport options, which would restrict his employment options. Jack reassured Timothy that atWork Australia were experts in supporting people to overcome their barriers to find employment and that together they would put steps in place to support him on his employment journey.


The pair began discussing Timothy’s employment goals. In conversation, Timothy mentioned he had been studying Community Services. Jack encouraged him to continue with his studies. After this encouragement, he completed his Certificate 3 in Community Services. In preparation to start applying for jobs, Jack helped Timothy update his resume to reflect his new qualifications and drafted a suitable cover letter.

Additionally, Jack referred Timothy to atWork Australia’s in-house Allied Health Services, where he could get support from a professional Wellness Advisor.

Jack began supporting Timothy in applying for jobs. Jack contacted employers on his behalf, enquiring about any available positions and sharing details of Timothy’s skill set. Through their combined efforts, Timothy soon secured a new position as a Support Worker.

Timothy’s Job Coach, Jack, said, “Since commencing with atWork Australia, Timothy has worked through a lot of his personal barriers. Employment has been a good change in his life.”

Timothy continues to reap the rewards of employment, it has improved his self-belief, self-esteem and helped him to re-gain purpose in life. atWork Australia look forward to continuing to support Timothy throughout his employment journey.
