Kevork resettled in Australia almost six months ago as a Syrian refugee. In Syria he had worked as a former and fitter machinist running a successful business specialising in the manufacturing of plastic moulds and car parts.
With an abundance of skills and qualifications, Kevork was eager to find employment in his new home country. Numerous companies where approached by Olympus Solutions on his behalf and despite his efforts and qualifications, he struggled to find employment for quite some time.
Olympus Solutions contacted Bluey's Ute World and the manager Peter was willing to give Kevork an interview and subsequent work trial. Kevork was accompanied to his interview by his Employment Liaison Consultant from Olympus Solutions. Even though Kevork has limited English skills, which he is working on developing, Peter from Bluey’s Ute World focused on his qualifications and eagerness to work and contribute to his new country.
Kevork has now been in employment for six weeks; Peter is furthering Kevorks knowledge of the Bluey’s Ute World by introducing him new parts of the business and requesting Kevork obtain a forklift license, which has been organised by Olympus Solutions and funded by the employment fund.
