atWork Australia client, Vanessa, said, "MoneyMinded motivated me to look at my finances and save for the future."

At the young age of 22, Vanessa came to atWork Australia’s Clare office in South Australia to get support from the Workforce Australia team to kick start her employment journey.

Vanessa was an ambitious and motivated young lady. She was prepared to accept the guidance and support from the atWork Australia team. Vanessa was connected with her Job Coach, Anika, who could immediately see that Vanessa was motivated and was eager to secure employment.

To help open new doors to employment, Vanessa enrolled in a Certificate III in Individual Support and Disability. Vanessa was enjoying her course; she had found something she was incredibly passionate about, and this was evident in her impressive results throughout her course. She even managed to complete her studies earlier than expected.

Like many people, Vanessa was aware of the financial pressures of being unemployed. In preparation to start work, and so Vanessa could feel more confident to effectively manage her income once she started work, Anika referred her to atWork Australia’s internal program, MoneyMinded. MoneyMinded is an ANZ financial education program, teaching participants how to make informed decisions and manage money to reduce financial stress.

Soon enough, Vanessa was at the final step of completing her Certificate III in Individual Support and Disability. She returned to the atWork Australia office to complete a screening checklist, which was required for her to then complete her final placement to finalise her studies. While Vanessa was in the office, she ran into Emma, her Pre-employment facilitator who coordinated the MoneyMinded program. Emma was setting up to deliver another session to a new group. Vanessa mentioned she regularly pulls out her old workbook from when she completed the course, so she can review the strategies and continue to stay on top of her finances.

atWork Australia are thrilled that Vanessa still utilises the strategies she learnt during the program and that they are positively impacting her life. atWork Australia have enjoyed supporting Vanessa on her employment journey and have no doubt she will go on to have a bright future.

“MoneyMinded motivated me to look at my finances and save for the future,” said Vanessa.
