Amanda makes a welcome return to Hungry Jacks
Amanda commenced with Sureway Port Adelaide in May 2020 after taking some time away from the workforce to raise her children. Before Amanda’s break from work, she was a member of the Hungry Jacks team and was eager to return. ‘I was determined to be able to help Amanda back into employment, especially with Hungry Jacks, as I could tell how much returning would mean to her,’ said Employment Support Officer Mia.
It took just three months, a good dose of willpower and ongoing support from the Sureway team for Amanda to land her dream job with Hungry Jacks. With a wage subsidy and regular post-placement support Amanda has now been a valued employee for more than twelve months.
Since returning to work, Amanda has been awarded Star Employee of the Month and given the opportunity to complete a traineeship in retail. ‘I was hesitant at first, as this would be my third attempt at a traineeship. But with Sureway’s support I felt prepared and supported to take on the challenge,’ said Amanda.
Mia assisted Amanda throughout the course and together they overcame the challenges associated with reading, comprehension, word definitions and spelling. Amanda celebrated the successful completion of her traineeship in October 2021!
Now a role model for other clients, the Port Adelaide team look forward to welcoming Amanda to speak at their Job Club so she can share her story with other job seekers
