“Employers think that people with a disability won’t be able to perform the same tasks as other people, but that’s not the case. Cameron has proved that people with a disability can be just as good, if not better, than anyone else.”

Lorenzo, Jim's Mowing

“The help I received from WISE to secure this role has really changed my life. I now have the ability to live the life that I always wanted to and within an industry that excites me immensely. Gaining employment has meant that I can now live an independent life, which, for use of a better word, makes me feel normal.”

Steve | Former job seeker

“I’m so grateful for WISE Employment, I love this job and they helped me get it. They were always on my side when I wanted to give up. Most job agencies don’t help, you’re just another person to them, but WISE allowed me to see the good side of a job agency. For someone that was bullied at school and lacked confidence, I’m now feeling independent and excited for the future. This is more than a job, it’s my hobby. It gets me out of bed in the morning and gives me a sense of normality. It has changed my life.”

Eric | Former job seeker

When you have a job, you can handle your life, and you can help others. I am not that person to just lie down and take Centrelink – I like to pay tax because I live in this beautiful country and I take it as my responsibility to contribute to it.”

Zak | Former job seeker

“I’d lost respect for myself. It’s demoralising the way people look at you [when you’re homeless]. Now I’m back on track, I’ve got my life back. I feel independent. I’ve got a dollar in my pocket, most of the time! I’m being constructive and giving back.”

Michael | Former job seeker

“I found it hard to find a job due to mental health issues and single parenting. WISE understood my needs, they were supportive, and helped me get a job that I love. I’m now the Operations Manager for my employer.”

Cassie | Former job seeker

“I had an aneurysm that led to a serious stroke. WISE gave me a lot of care and attention that I couldn’t find anywhere else and helped me get a job in a call centre. I would recommend WISE to anyone.”

Tim | Former job seeker

“I found it really difficult to get a job because of my dyslexia. They organised a job plan for me. They got me into training and now I just adore working in aged care. I love my clients. Now I’m pursuing a career in nursing, that’s my real main goal.”

Vicki | Former job seeker

“I have poor hearing, short memory and I have lower back problems. WISE are there to help you find work and push you forward in life. They’ve helped me find more work and given me more hours. I just love to work. I love to do something with my life and make myself feel useful.”

Jayson | Former job seeker

My disability is anxiety, bi-polar and depression, and working with WISE I overcome a little bit of it every day. Go and see WISE, they’ll get you up off the couch, they helped me find my career so I think if they can help me they can help anyone.”
