Alex is a capable young man who had a great deal of determination to turn his life around. Since engaging with Olympus Solutions Gosford, he has successfully commenced employment at Air Brake Systems at Hornsby as a Warehouse Assistant. Alex performed very well on the job and has recently become a permanent employee. He has taken on a new sense of drive and determination, all he needed was a little support in the right direction.
“Working has provided me with a much better quality of life”, says Alex. “There’s a lot more freedom now. I can do what I want instead of living week to week.”
At the time that he came to Olympus Solutions, Alex did not have permanent accommodation. Despite the challenging circumstances, our Employment Liaison Consultant supported Alex initially with goal setting and identifying strengths and career goals.
Alex expressed interest in warehousing, so that’s where his job search began. Our consultant contacted Air Brake Systems who had been looking to find a specific person to fit into their unique team due to growth and organised an interview for Alex.
The team at Olympus Solutions also supported him with Back to Work counselling, work clothes, transport and training courses to enhance his employability. In March 2017, Alex connected with Wesley Mission and received assistance in obtaining housing.
With the right support from Olympus Solutions, Alex then interviewed for the role at Air Brake Solutions and was offered a position. He has been reliable, hardworking and consistently performing well at the job.
While continuing his role at Airbrake solutions, Alex also works casually at sporting venues through Labourpower and also at Niagara Park Tavern on the weekends.
Well done Alex! You should be very proud of your achievements.
