Vicki’s story

By October 13, 2021November 7th, 2021No Comments

A mother of four children, and grandmother to thirteen, Vicki has previously worked in accounting, bookkeeping and has had her own business. While she had a wealth of experience, she needed culturally appropriate mentoring and further training to secure long-term employment that would allow her to continue supporting her family. After a few life-changing events she felt like taking on a new career path.

Vicki is now employed as an Aboriginal Care Worker, working in the community and caring for our Elders. She has overcome many obstacles and barriers to achieve her goals and we wish her every success in her new role.

Vicki participated in a local Real Futures Mob Day in October 2020. Real Futures then supported her by:

  • creating a personalised resume
  • interview training
  • facilitating foundation skills training
  • connecting her with training to obtain a Certificate III in Individual Support
  • providing guidance with job applications, and helping with onboarding.

“The lovely Real Futures team assisted me in so many ways with getting my new role as an Aboriginal Aged Care worker. I found out about the position by attending a Real Futures – Mob Day where I got to meet employers and other colleagues firsthand. This made a big difference as it felt welcoming and made the interview process more relaxed. Real Futures assisted me with getting ready for work ensuring I had everything the employers needed and preparing me to be Job Ready. I am very thankful to the Real Futures team”. Vicki.

Real Futures continues to provide post-placement support and mentoring.
