Judy's Story

Judy's Story

Judy started work for the first time in over eight years.

When Judy* first came to Workskil Australia in 2015, she had been unemployed for eight years due to parenting responsibilities. Judy told us she felt anxious about re-entering the workforce and for a time, had struggled with mental health issues.

Judy’s Employment Consultant at the Workskil Australia Enfield office worked with her one on one to develop a resumé that Judy felt confident giving to potential employers. Judy’s next step was to undertake some training in how best to search for work and how this may have changed since she was last actively seeking a job. Just two months after Judy’s job seeking skills were brought up to date, Workskil Australia’s business development team placed Judy into paid employment as a cleaner with a reputable employer. Judy and her employer were contacted regularly by Workskil Australia’s post-placement support team to ensure that Judy was settling into her new role well.
