Working in disability is a unique opportunity where no two days are the same, because supporting people of different ages, with a variety of needs and abilities, means touching various lives in impactful ways.
We’ve found this is one of the most common reasons our AimBig Employment team members love their job, where the flexibility of their schedule and the variety of people they come across means that every day is different.
Don’t just take our word for it! We spoke to some of our job coaches to gain insight into why they love the variety of work in their role.
“No two days are ever the same, and there is never a dull moment. I love the challenge of being on the go while ensuring I am supportive and understanding of the job seekers needs. I come to work every day with the aim of helping someone achieve something, even if it’s something as simple as a smile, especially with the year that we’ve all had. Working with people living with disability and helping them thrive really allowed me to grow as a person and of course over the years as a job coach.”
– Wasan Lupi-Spencer, Job Coach and Team Leader, Fairfield, NSW.
“I’ve worked at AimBig Employment for 2 years, and what drives me and motivates me is telling my clients that they have landed employment. I love the variety of the role, where some days you’re working with participants, and others you’re engaging with local employers to help them find a solution for their business needs. I’ve had several success stories of participants who have come to AimBig Employment who tell me they aren’t ready to work, and then supporting them into successfully securing their dream job. Working with AimBig Employment is different every day and I love the challenge.”
– Jarrod Case, Senior Job Coach, Newcastle, NSW.
“Thinking outside of the box is one of the most important qualities as a team member within AimBig Employment, as we are always supporting a variety of stakeholders. I love working here because I like to be a role model and leading my team by example, where we can achieve our goals together and grow as one team. We always keep people at the heart of everything we do whether they are employees or customers, and I love that every day is working with someone different. Although AimBig is young, it’s rich in its reputation for being a number one DES provider, specifically around star ratings.”
– Meryana Almardini, Area Manager, Moonee Ponds, VIC.
“Some important qualities of being a job coach are resilience, empathy and tenacity, as you have to help your participants in reaching their employment goals and sustaining them in their ongoing roles. I have been with AimBig Employment for about half a year, and what I love about working here is seeing the personal growth in my participants to watch them overcome a range of barriers. It is always something different every day, and it’s an exciting time to be part of a growing and motivated team.”
– Joy Hancock, Team Leader, North Lakes, QLD.
