Richard started with the AimBig Employment Inverell Office not long ago and has completed a Certificate III in Warehousing Operations. In the initial consultations with his Job Coach, Therese Astridge, she spent time with him getting to truly understand him and his situation and ascertaining what jobs he wanted to do. Out of that discussion, Therese then recommended Richard to complete the Certificate III.
This was when good news became great news. Whilst still completing the course, Richard took a role with a leading disability enterprise in NSW. Wanting to balance between work and study, Richard negotiated to work 4 days per week and used his extra time to complete his Certificate III qualification.
Richard loves his work, and his bosses are wonderful to him. We even managed to get Richard’s partner starting work with the enterprise. Richard’s father drives them to work and picks them up after a great day of work assisting his employers.
Richard is now completing his work placement hours at Harvey Norman in Inverell and once he is armed with a formal qualification and some experience under his belt, Richard is set up for continued success in the future.
