Discussing an individual’s talents and skills is core to Sarina Russo Job Access’s strategy to get people with disability a job.
As a former massage therapist, Brette Pope developed carpal tunnel syndrome in her hands.
Her former career had blessed her with exceptional people skills.
To maximise Brette’s skills and prepared her for a new career in age care, childcare or youth work we recommended she undertake a Certificate II in Community Services.
James Lopez-Colomer suffered multiple back injuries and was unable to remain self-employed as a builder. At 55 he thought getting back to work was “never going to happen”.
To maintain his links with the construction or building industries he began a Certificate in Retail to learn the latest techniques and computer skills to become job ready for opportunities at his local Bunnings or paint shop.
Job seekers like Brette and James can get back to work through individual plans which
- Identify their skills and abilities
- Gives them access to specialist services and vocational training;
- Includes work experience and / or paid work trials; and
- Support workplace modifications.
