Jaccob's Story

Jaccob's Story

Well done to Jaccob, one of our Indigenous job seekers, who recently not only bought his first car but also landed a position through Adecco.

When Jaccob first came to us as a Transition to Work customer, he was very keen to work but had a number of personal barriers to overcome. Whilst attending our weekly job club sessions, our team assisted Jaccob in a number of ways, including updating his resume, helping with interview skills and lessons on tailoring cover letters. We were also able to assist with the cost of a forklift licence and driving lessons, which ultimately led to him gaining his provisional licence.

One of our Youth Employment Brokers, Sarah said "The resilience and determination Jaccob has demonstrated over the last 10 months is inspiring; it has been a privilege to have been part of his journey."

A big congratulations to Jaccob and his Workskil Australia support team!
