Timothy Breaks down Barriers
Timothy was determined to work but felt sometimes it near impossible to find sustainable employment for himself.
Timothy already had a job but his hours were inconsistent and it was not in his industry of choice, so he came to Olympus Solutions | Ability Options Merrylands site as a voluntary participant looking for support in finding more suitable long-term employment.
After some discussions with Sian, Employer Engagement Consultant, it was clear that Timothy had passion for hands-on work. Sian then made contact with Décor Systems Pty Ltd and negotiated a placement for Timothy under the Supported Wage System as a Cleaner.
Upon starting employment at Décor Systems, Timothy received assistance from a Job Support Consultant offering onsite job training, creating daily task lists and liaising with his employer to ensure Timothy’s barriers were being addressed and to ensure he was settling in well into his new environment.
Timothy’s employer mentioned that “he is a great employee, he keeps the place spotless and is always wanting to learn”.
Timothy has recently successfully passed his 26 week outcome, been offered increased hours as part of a part-time contract and expanded his daily duties to include assembly work, which he greatly enjoys.
Congratulations Timothy, keep up the great work!
