Graham switched to Olympus Solutions from another provider, commencing with us in May 2017. His initial appointment coincided with a jobseeker focused marketing day being facilitated onsite at The Entrance so the site was busy with lots of activities, workshops, Q & A sessions and people focused on finding jobs.
Graham met with his new Employment Advisor and two Employer Liaison Consultants who were onsite working with jobseekers at the marketing day. Employer Liaison Consultant, Amanda had recently brokered a role that Graham was a great fit for. Olympus assisted him with urgent car registration so he could attend the interview, which had been scheduled for him the next day with the possibility of an immediate start.
Unfortunately Graham missed out on the role, but he continued to work hard with his Employment Advisor and he was referred to another vacancy at Cafe F3 (Northbound Petrol station). The employer at Café F3 was impressed with Graham’s resourcefulness and willingness to work, and offered him a start under the National Work Experience Program (NWEP) for two weeks prior to commencing employment.
Graham proved himself on the job and after three days into the NWEP the employer at Café F3 said they were really happy with him and Graham didn’t need any further training and they were going to start paying him from that morning.
Olympus has continued to support Graham utilizing the employment fund with fuel cards and work clothes.
Graham calls into the Olympus Solutions office now and then as he lives locally to keep us all up to date with how he is enjoying his job.
