Mary-Rose’s life changed when Sarina Russo Job Access Beenleigh set her on a new career path.
Mary-Rose shares her job seeker journey after completing a back-to-work course with Sarina Russo Job Access.
“I have been a cleaner for the last 10 years and I was fed up with it and wanted to change my career.
During my time in the course, I met someone from the Royal College of Healthcare and by that afternoon, I was enrolled in a Certificate 3 in Aged Care.
I did struggle with the theory side of the course, however I persisted and I completed the theory prior to many of the other students.
After completing my time in the class room, I commenced work placement with Bethania Gardens.
On my 2nd day of work placement, I was offered ongoing employment.
I love my career change and feel good when my clients call me ‘Nurse Mary’.
I am grateful for all of the support that I have received from Sarina Russo Job Access and The Royal College of Healthcare.
