John Mate is a 60 year old local from Wollongong who loves AFL, he is a dedicated worker for his local club and is held in high esteem by his mates.

However whilst his football club mates love him he is seeking his next career move so he can add a few workmates to the list of people who think he is great guy.

Jobfind Employment Consultant Ian Mackintosh outlined John’s qualifications and experience.

“John has extensive experience which is supported by multiple machine operation tickets for crane, excavator, rigger and dog man machines He also has a HC truck driving license and worked as a scaffolder.

John has a few challenges with his shoulder and knee however as long as he has the opportunity to alternatively stand and sit and do some stretches he would be a fantastic addition to any workplace.”

John is held in such high regard by his local football club they are organising to raise funds to help him gain a vehicle to assist with his employment journey in particular so that he can be considered for roles where public transport is an issue.

John is humbled by the efforts of his football club mates and has been ecstatic by the support being given by Jobfind.

“I’m lucky to be surrounded by such supportive people, the football club are a great family fraternity and working with Jobfind has given me the confidence to find employment again.”

Jobfind is proud to announce John Mate as our Job Seeker of the Week.

Wollongong Jobseeker of the week – Alafita Faletoese

August 11th, 2017

Alafita Faletoese, a registered nurse, met with her Employment Consultant Christina Armstrong 6 weeks ago. She stated she previously had a severe case of tendonitis in her wrist which has now healed and that she had not worked for over 18 months. She presented with anxiety issues, negative behaviour and low self-esteem about getting back into the workforce.


By building up her self-esteem and with support from her consultant during weekly appointments, and being part of our JOBFIND Club, her consultant was able help Alafita realise she has a rewarding career ahead of her. This helped Alafita to present herself with a more positive attitude and enthusiasm during her interviews with employers. As a result, Alafita now has a contract with Griffith Hospital as a registered nurse in Griffith, NSW!


We have to remember when people have been out of the workforce and have had an injury, it can be a scary thing to go back into the workforce. Alafita started believing in herself and this changed her life.


We as consultants can turn this around with strong support and encouragement by helping participants to grow their self-belief.
