Daniel started working with the Jobfind Richmond centre in January 2019. After battling depression and drug dependency issues for many years, his interaction with Jobfind has turned his life around.
Employment Consultant, Jacqui Lamb, helped Daniel into employment by accessing several services such as Healthfind, the Employment Fund, and his employer received a wage subsidy.
First, Daniel was connected with Healthfind, our exclusive counselling and support services, for extra assistance dealing with substance abuse. He also accessed the Employment Fund to help cover work-related expenses.
This year, he completed the Bounce Program through Jobfind, which helps job seekers:
- gain confidence with one-on-one mentoring sessions
- completing job search tasks, and
- learning more about themselves and what drives them.
The course did wonders for Daniel, and he wanted to get work immediately.
Daniel gained employment as a packer, and after three days, they wanted him as a full-time employee as a forklift driver. His employer says he is “an absolute stand out”.
Daniel regularly checks in with Jacqui and is very grateful for all of the tremendous support.
“Jacqui helped me since the day I stepped foot into Jobfind. I battled with depression and drug dependency for many years – even while I was working. But with Jobfind’s help, I have found that there is so much more to life. Thank you!”
