Caitlyn began the Transition to Work program (now known as School Leaver Employment Support) with The Disability Trust in early 2016. Caitlyn identified early that she wanted to pursue a career involving customer service such as retail or hospitality. Given Caitlyn’s bubbly personality, we felt that this was a very achievable goal.
Caitlyn’s individually tailored Transition to Work program focused strongly on work experience in customer service roles and through our local connections we organised several opportunities at Trade Secret, Great Union Cinemas, Coles, Belmore All Suites Serviced Apartments, Origin Rugs and a café in Figtree Grove.
To support this, we also assisted Caitlyn with:
Caitlyn transitioned across to Workskills later in the year and receives drop in support from her Employment Consultant.
Caitlyn is doing exceptionally well at Black Salt Brasserie working 3 – 4 shifts per week, earning full award wages and focused on a long term career in hospitality.
