Christopher Hewitt is a young male who is 90 weeks in program.
Christopher had been job searching and applying for positions on the Northern Beaches with the support of his Ostara employment consultant.
He persevered through Covid lockdown, having requested copies of his resume to hand out to local Northern Beaches businesses, Sydney CBD and surrounding suburbs.
Christopher attended all his appointments and focused on securing a full-time job to create a better life for himself and increase his finances.
Ostara supported Christopher by topping up his Opal card regularly, he expressed barely having enough funds to cover his travel to and from job interviews.
He initially secured a part time job February 2022 with FUNLAB in Darlinghurst on a part time basis. He liked this role however being part time was not providing him with enough financial security.
Christopher advised his Ostara consultant FUNLAB was not enough, he needed to find full time work.
He was submitted to Hardware & General in Brookvale, he attended the interview, passed the medical and started work on a full-time basis April 2022.
So far Christopher is settling into his full-time job very well, he is undergoing training, is enjoying the role, and meeting new people.
Ostara has rewarded Christopher with a Kmart gift card to purchase clothing and shoes for his new full-time role.
Christopher is looking forward to working full time hours and receiving his first weekly pay.
