Artistic flair has replaced John’s self-doubt and lack confidence after completing his Work for the Dole activity with St John’s Uniting Care Op Shop.
From unemployed mature-aged jobseeker John (centre) has transformed himself into a visual merchandising man and window fit-out extraordinaire and is now an instrumental member of the Op Shop team.
John plans to undertake course in Visual Merchandising whilst still volunteering at the Op Shop. John is also approaching other Op Shops in the local area asking for casual window dressing work.
His Work for the Dole coordinator Cathy Hill said his Work for the Dole placement has been terrific and demonstrates the true benefits Work for the Dole.
