The staff at Orange Job Centre Australia are very proud of Craig who has successfully gained employment.

Craig had been unemployed for almost four years due to a history of ill health. In just eight months, Craig has made an unbelievable turn around and is now a changed man.

What started as a casual position fitting tyres on machinery and heavy vehicles has grown into a new lifestyle. Craig now rides his trusty push bike over 5 km each way to work. Craig has shed 20 kgs due to this mode of transport, thus improving his state of health and general wellbeing

Craig is the first to admit that he was sceptical when his Case Manager suggested he return to work as a Tyre Fitter, however, he is grateful for this encouragement and support.

This really does speak volumes in re-joining the work force with the assistance from Job Centre Australia. Craig credits his new life to the support of his employer’s Graham and Allen Sharp at Jax’s Tyres in Orange. His hard work has been rewarded with the security of a full time position.

Craig’s success story is another example of how Job Centre Australia is assisting people to improve their lives through securing sustainable employment.

We wish Craig all the best for the future and encourage anyone in Orange, with health barriers or disabilities, to contact Job Centre Australia on 6362 9281 or pop into our office located at 82-84 Kite Street Orange to see how we can help you.
