A Glenorchy man whom has been unemployed for over 5 years has recently obtained Full Time employment.
He had been suffering from extreme mental health issues for some time and had no confidence in himself and thought he was unable to return to the workforce. He had poor attendance and presentation issues.
He was referred to an external provider to assist him to address these barriers.
He slowly gained more confidence in himself and improved attendance as a result. He was then referred to a Civil Training Course where he acquired a range of tickets and was introduced to Workskills Employer Services Team.
He has since gained employment and a wage subsidy has been put in place to help maintain his employment. We will be delivering intensive post placement support to address any barriers that may arise.
Employer feedback stated he has going really well!!
