Sureway supporting locals

Being out of work can be a stressful and challenging time. It can be difficult for many locals living with disability, injury, or illness to know where to start. That’s where Sureway Employment & Training come in.

Sureway has proudly assisted job seekers in finding work for over 30 years. Sureway’s Employment Consultant in Corowa, Geoff, said that now more than ever, Sureway understands the challenges people with disabilities face when job searching.

“It has been a testing time. Particularly for people who may have found themselves out of work for the first time following COVID-19,” he said.

“If you have found yourself in this situation, you can be sure that at Sureway Corowa, our team is your team.”

The services aim to support people to identify what is holding them back from work and create a plan to move forward, Geoff said.

“Our goal is to support locals to find work right here in town, which enables the Corowa community to grow stronger and move forward.”

“Our friendly team are a passionate bunch of locals who are ready to assist you in getting into work,” he said.

Geoff said services are tailored to the individual and their unique situation, and job seekers could expect to be highly engaged along their pathway to work.

“Your employment consultant will work with you to identify your strengths, build upon your soft skills, and connect you with relevant training or work experience opportunities.”

Geoff said that the service was also focused on long-term success for their job seekers.

“We can help you find the right job for you, and we’ll also support you to keep your job,” he said.

“This support can include additional training, clothing and equipment for work, on-the-job visits, or a regular check-in by phone.”

He said that having a plan to reach your employment goals is the key to success.

“The new year is a great time to think about your goals, especially if you have just finished school and are ready to look for work. We encourage and welcome locals to reach out for a no-obligation chat about how our team could help you create a plan to reach your goals,” he said.

Geoff emphasized that the services are free for both job seekers and employers.

“Delivering services under the Australian Government’s Disability Employment Services (DES) contract means that we can connect job seekers with a vast network of employers in all types of industries at no cost to you.”
