Case Study

The Automotive Workers in Transition Program provides career counselling through Northern Futures

When GM Holden announced it was closing, Brian of Craigmore was working in an automotive supply chain company and worried about his future.

“I was unsure and not confident of what the future would hold due to my age.  I was also not confident that I would be able to utilise my skills and transition into a new role easily,” Brian said.

Under the State Government’s Automotive Workers in Transition Program, Brian received career counselling through Northern Futures and completed a training course.

“I was successful in gaining interviews which assisted with my overall confidence.  Even though leaving my workplace was an extremely hard decision for me to make, I needed to move on to establish stability and sustainability in my life again.

I have been successful in gaining my dream job working for a small family owned business as a Mobile Service Technician. I now look forward to going to work every day and I have regained my confidence and self-worth.”
