When Milan approached CVGT Australia, he was feeling disappointed and frustrated that employment seemed to fade when an employer reached the end of the wage subsidy period. Milan, who has autism spectrum disorder and Erb’s palsy, felt like he was being passed from pillar to post. The team from CVGT Ballarat wanted to change that and help Milan find meaningful employment.
In getting to know Milan, the team discovered he had a passion for voice acting with the vision to apply this skill to video games. They worked closely with Milan and provided him with the extra support he needed to find a pathway into this competitive field by organising work experience at local radio station Voice FM.
Milan got a behind the scenes look at how a radio station operates and even had the opportunity to read the weather report.
After completing his work experience, Milan expressed an interest in working in a technology related role so this became the goal for all.
CVGT liaised with Richard, the owner of Wiltronics, and secured Milan a job at the electronics supply company. CVGT supported Milan by taking him to the interview and being there to welcome him on his first day at work.
Milan has eased into his role on the production line which includes packing order and unpacking deliveries. He is learning to master one thing at a time with a view to build his overall confidence.
Wiltronics offers Milan an environment that interests him and has room for growth.
The team at CVGT Ballarat are proud to have supported Milan and helped to enhance his confidence and skills. Thank you also to local business Wiltronics who are willing to give everyone a go and help an employee realise their potential.
