Phillip had extensive experience at CEO levels with Sydney based companies for many years. However, after an injury to his leg he needed to take a step back from the demands and pressure of life as an Executive and focus on his recovery.
Now living on the Gold Coast, Phillip, 58, had been unemployed for 4 months after being made redundant due to Covid-19. Phillip found it difficult to find employment that was suitable to manage with his injury and could not sustain the long commute to Brisbane.
As Phillip has a plethora of experience and years under his belt, atWork Australia used the strategy of reverse marketing to approach an employer they had previously done business with.
Active Debt Recovery were excited to see Phillip’s resume; they saw great potential in his experience for their business.
For Phillip, this role was a great opportunity to draw on his years of experience and to feel productive and appreciated in the workplace.
Active Debt Recovery said, “working with atWork Australia was absolutely fantastic; they’re professional and helpful throughout the whole process, ensuring we take our time to review the applicants”.
Phillip’s Job Coach, Lee, saw potential in Phillip’s resume, thus engaged with the Employer team for a business referral. Active Debt Recovery created a new Business Development role for Phillip and have since been referred two more atWork Australia clients to join their team. Phillips performance has seen the incoming work increase considerably, thus the requirement for additional staff became prevalent.
