Daniel Lilley: A Construction Labourer’s Journey with AimBig Employment

Referred to AimBig by Kerrie, in January 2023, Dan embarked on a journey to receive assistance as a construction labourer and to sustain his employment. The collaboration between Kerrie, Jim Torpey, and Elise Davis at AimBig outlined a comprehensive support model with individualised goals and clear responsibilities to guide Dan on his Work Assist journey.

From the outset, Dan, a construction labourer, played a crucial role in building the new RSL QLD Mates for Mates facility in Stafford, QLD. His involvement in this significant project marked the beginning of a transformative chapter in his life. AimBig provided Dan with an array of support, including on-the-job mentoring, debriefing sessions, essential tools and equipment, and crucial personal protective equipment. The collaborative efforts resulted in a visible transformation, with Dan’s confidence and personal growth shining through.

One standout moment in Dan’s journey was the receiving of a new power drill to enhance his efficiency in the role. This not only supported Dan’s work tasks but also served as a tangible representation of the ongoing commitment to his success. In the spirit of giving, Santa and his helper further brightened Dan’s day by providing a food hamper, recognising the challenges he faced with the rising cost of living. These gestures showcased the human-centred approach of AimBig, extending beyond the workplace.

As Dan approaches his 52 weeks of employment milestone in January 2024, his joy and satisfaction in his job are evident. Working 2-3 days per week, Dan’s dedication to his role as a construction labourer is not only a testament to his own resilience but also a reflection of the supportive environment cultivated by AimBig. His need for a new drill, crucial for timely task completion and assisting fellow tradies, highlights the practical and customized assistance provided to ensure sustained success.

Dan’s journey stands as a testament to the power of collaboration, individualised support, and a community-driven approach in helping individuals like him thrive in their chosen professions.
