Brad's Story

Brad’s Story

headspace Employment Support Client

Brad*, aged 22, joined headspace Edinburgh North’s Employment Support program in 2021. At the time of Brad’s referral, he explained that he was eager to re-enter the workforce but struggled with deciding what type of work would be most suitable.

Aram was selected as Brad’s Employment Specialist. Aram worked closely with Brad to explore different career options and carefully consider the impact of each different career path on his health barriers. Aram worked with Brad to build a high-quality resume and cover letter and also supported him to develop effective interview techniques through a series of mock interviews.

During an appointment, Brad explained that he was interested in becoming a cleaner. Aram secured an interview for Brad with All Clean Facility Services and after attending the interview, Brad was offered a role as a sub-contractor.

Aram continues to work with Brad as he settles into his new role to ensure work is still going well and to provide advice and support with Centrelink and engagement with his Disability Employment Services Provider.
