Uploaded: 29/11/2019
Renae came to Status having battled mental illness for a number of years and was struggling to find work due to low confidence and self-belief. The Status Disability Employment Support team at Noarlunga worked with Renae in individual sessions as well as through Job Clubs to increase her confidence, employability skills and assist to manage her barriers, improving her ability to find sustainable work.

Our Business Development Consultant Rudy worked with Renae to introduce her to multiple employers, including Millennium Hi Tech where she gained employment as a cleaner. Renae has now been in this role for six months, and after commencing at 15 hours per week Renae has increased her work capacity to 30 hours per week through the ongoing mentoring and support assistance from the Noarlunga team.

We wish Renae well as she continues to grow and see the benefits of all the hard work she has put in for herself and her career.
