Juliet immigrated to Australia at the end of 2013 and joined the Key Employment team in April 2014.
Prior to immigration Juliet worked as a contracted freelance Qualified British Sign Language Interpreter, having previously worked for a Deaf Society in Scotland for the past 10 years. As an interpreter Juliet has had the opportunity to work within many different industries such as medical, educational, legal and employment services to name a few.
During her time in Scotland she worked closely with Disability Employment Officers to provide and improve employable services for deaf people. This is when she discovered her passion and talent to educate and promote accessibility to all those who experience disability or injury. Juliet believes that with the appropriate knowledge, information and support anything is possible.
When Juliet arrived in Coffs Harbour she worked briefly with TAFE providing support to students while she studied to achieve her Cert III in Auslan. Juliet has transferred her skills learnt while working at Key Employment and continues to promote accessibility to all.
“If it wasn’t for Key Employment I wouldn’t have the job I have now. I would not have had the confidence to apply for the job I did or do well in the interviews if it wasn’t for them. Key Employment isn’t scary! Just sign up with them and they will help you find a full-time or part-time job.”
“Training @ Key provided an adult learning environment with non-judgemental teaching. They take the time to explain things to me which makes me want to attend.”
“Key Employment are helping me get my driving licence by providing free driving lessons to help me along the way.”
“I like Key Employment because it helps you with your job seeking and career. The trainers are very helpful with all of it. It is a lot better than school and I’m looking forward to getting my career sorted.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
