Today the Australian Government released its official star ratings for the Disability Employment Service (DES) providers of which Jobfind has a number of contracts.

 

Jobfind achieved a rating of 4 stars in Wollongong and an outstanding 5 stars in Fairfield.

 

Whilst the STAR ratings indicate that Jobfind’s performance has been outstanding, the most satisfying element to this result is that Jobfind has assisted in changing the lives of those Australians who live with a disability and need assistance in finding a job.

 

Jobfind CEO Mr Michael Hobday said: “It’s a great day, having a job is one of the most vital elements for anyone in society, it provides purpose, social inclusion and financial security.”

 

He added: “Jobfind provides training, preparation for interviews & practical advice on the actual job as well as providing post placement support to ensure clients receive the best possible service, to take on a sustainable role in the Australian workforce.”

 

DES GM Ms Wendy Young was ecstatic about the result: “My congratulations go to the dedicated Managers and all the staff who have given their heart & soul into changing people’s lives, which is reflected in our results.”

 

She also paid tribute to our participants who for the most part are desperate to work and enjoy the benefits of having sustained employment.

 

Mr Hobday concluded by saying that he was: “extremely proud of the results achieved in the December quarter. We will celebrate the success of these results on behalf of our clients who have gained employment through their hard work and dedication.”

 

“These results also only make us more determined to keep achieving and assisting more of our clients with their career aspirations.”

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.
