Supporting Chrissy to follow her passion

Chrissy loves helping people, and with the support of CVGT Employment she is back in the workforce and making a difference. 

A medical condition had led to Chrissy giving up a previous role in a job she loved – as a cook in a childcare facility. 

Feeling low on confidence, Chrissy decided to find a new path. 

Support to make a frest start

After connecting with the Disability Employment Services team at CVGT Employment in Ballarat, Chrissy developed a plan to relaunch her career. 

“From the moment I met Chrissy, I could see she had a caring and supportive nature,” branch manager Megan says. 

“I thought she would be perfect for a role in domestic support work, so we supported Chrissy to develop a resume and an application”. 

Chrissy was soon successful in finding a position, starting out with 15 hours a week of work before moving into a permanent, full-time role. 

The perfect job

Part of her job is helping clients to make their own meals – a role Chrissy is passionate about – while also supporting their social needs in the community. 

“This has given Chrissy the financial freedom she needs in a job that brings her joy,” Megan says. 

“To see Chrissy so happy and walking with a bounce in her step reminds us of why we do what we do.”
