Estia Health is an aged care facility with a proud heritage of providing aged care across Australia for over 50 years. Jobfind works with the Figtree facility.
Paul & Karen have both had some challenges getting sustainable employment in recent times, but with perseverance and determination and the support of Jobfind they have found work with Estia Health in roles they’re really enjoying, with potential for future career enhancement.
Paul had a very traumatic accident where he lost a number of his fingers. Jobfind Wollongong Manager Claudine Levy said: “Paul as a result of his positive attitude worked hard with his Jobfind Consultant to find and prepare for a job. He also completed a Cert 3 in Aged Care & Hospitality.”
She added: “Jobfind approached Estia Health on Pauls behalf and they gave him an opportunity in the food services area which he embraced with great enthusiasm. Estia are very happy with Paul and as a result of his past skills & experiences they see him in the future going into bigger & better roles.”
Ms Levy said: “Karen is a very genuine person, had been a stay at home mum for a number of years and also had chronic back pain which meant she couldn’t sit or stand up for long periods of time.“
“Karen was very negative about her employment prospects when she was referred to Jobfind, but again as a result of a great employment plan and the completion of a training course in food safety and Barista training she was able to gain confidence and found employment with Estia.
Ms Levy concluded by saying: “Jobfind also take the pain away from the recruitment process, we select the right people for the job through our skilled job matching specialists, so there is no need for employers to take out expensive ads or spend time on the all-consuming culling process. We also provide ongoing support for our participants in the early stages of them learning the job.”
“The other great thing about the whole service is its free!”
