Josh's Story

Josh's Story

Josh*, a local Aboriginal man in Whyalla, South Australia, has a close connection to country. While Josh had worked in the past, it was usually sporadic contract work with long breaks in between. When Josh’s most recent contract ended, he came to Workskil Australia’ s Whyalla office daily to search for work. Staff at the Whyalla office helped Josh to set up email for applications, polished his resume and helped him to respond to selection criteria questions and online job application. He was also supplied with protective equipment and a police clearance to assist him to find work.

In March 2016 Josh was successful in finding full time work as a Ranger for the Australian Defence Force. At the time of publishing, Josh is still working closely with the Defence Force to protect the land between Whyalla and Port Augusta.
