Tafe graduate, Lachlan has not only found himself a new job at Volkswagon Hornsby, but he’s also found it to improve his social life and given him greater financial independence.
After completing his Cert III in Business Admin, Lachlan was eager to find a job, but didn’t know where to start. For a first time job seeker it can be challenging to get your foot in the door, so Lachlan connected with Ability Options with the aim of getting the right type of guidance and mentoring needed to land himself a job he will enjoy.
When the Employment Liaison Consultant met with Lachlan, he was a little unsure of exactly what he wanted to do, but together they brainstormed and identified his skills, abilities and aspirations and then Lachlan landed an interview with Volkswagon Hornsby. He performed well in the interview and was offered a role as a Yard Hand and Administration Assistant.
He settled in very well and is growing in confidence as well as experience. Lachlan recently celebrated his 18th birthday at work and his co-workers surprised him with a cake. Lachlan loves his job at Volkswagen Hornsby and the team there love having him around.
In addition to his normal duties in the yard, Lachlan has also been helping out at the workshop and in the office where his Cert III in Business Administration has been really useful. He has hopes of starting an apprenticeship in the future so he can eventually become a mechanic.
