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.
“Key contact me or the boss regularly and make sure I don’t need anything to maintain my job.”
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
“Key Employment assessed my needs and organised the correct and appropriate training to help me upskill and to improve my employment options and chances.”
“This course (Training & Assessment) would be extremely difficult and complex to teach, and i thought Gerry’s manner and delivery was very helpful in such a challenging course.”
“Key Employment has helped me out a lot. I’m not as shy now and Key has helped me get a job and I’m more confident.”
