What is 'Coordination of Supports'?
Natalie’s journey to find her ideal job started nearly two years back. After months of navigating the employment market with a different provider, Natalie’s clinicians at Karrikin Youth Mental Health Service referred her to Olympus Solutions, the employment service of Ability Options.
“At the time, I was linked with a different Disability Employment Provider, but they didn’t really help me. I had limited work experience, and I didn’t even have a proper resume,” said Natalie.
Natalie was motivated, passionate about fashion, and was keen on finding a job in the retail industry. Natalie worked closely with her Employment Consultant, Kate, to build her confidence and to get herself job-ready with a new resume and interview training.
With support from the Chatswood team, Natalie secured the position of a Retail Assistant at H&M on a casual basis. A year on, with post-placement support, Natalie is not only a full-time employee with H&M but has also been promoted to a Cashier. She has newfound confidence, loves her job, and is delighted that she has stability and purpose.
“Ability Options was extremely helpful in finding me the job that suited my interests. The team was always understanding, patient, and made me feel welcome and supported in ways I had never experienced before. ,” said Natalie.
We like to acknowledge our partnership with Karrikin Youth Mental Health Service for working closely with our Chatswood team to support Natalie into a job she loves!
