Emma’s WorkABILITY Day experience

The first thing you notice about Emma is her amazing smile, which lights up her face, and her friendliness.

Getting work experience at Red Dot was certainly making her smile during WorkABILITY Day, and she was very happy to talk about her plans for the future.

Emma lives in Collie but plans to live in Bunbury when she finds a permanent job.

“When I find myself a job, my plans are to move into a unit in Bunbury where there are lots of opportunities for me to live an independent life,” she explained.  There is a good public transport system, which is important for me as I don’t drive.  There are also lots of activities to do in Bunbury, especially at the weekend, and I’d love to spend more time with my boyfriend too!”

Forrest Personnel Employment Consultant Donna Bastow said that Red Dot was her first port of call when she had clients that needed help returning to work from injury or entering the workplace for the first time.

“The Red Dot staff are so friendly and supportive to everyone we place here, and it is always a really good experience for them.” she said.

“The staff here are helpful, and our clients can learn all aspects of retail and how to engage with customers.

“We have a wonderful working relationship with the whole staff and management team.”

Manager of Red Dot Bunbury, Malcolm Passmore said he had no absolutely hesitation in taking part in WorkABILITY Day.

“Red Dot has been working with Forrest Personnel for over three years, and our relationship with Donna is really good.

“We have had a lot of people who are returning to work after injuries come to Red Dot for experience back in the workforce, and other work placements during that time.”
