Tannille, Pippi’s on the Beach

Tenacity and hard work was what it took for Tannille to secure employment in a supportive workplace.

Tannille had been unemployed for some time when she came to Workways Australia seeking support to guide her into employment. Working with Workways Recruitment Partner, Susan Dorries, Tannille was flexible with her needs and simply wanted to find a job.

Susan was impressed with Tannille’s resilience and attitude, which saw her participate in Workways jobs clubs and other activities that would improve her job readiness. Tannille was willing to try any job and never gave up searching for the right role.

Workways enrolled Tannille in a Barista course, the skills of which she used at a Workways community event where free coffee was served to participants.

With her training complete and experience with Workways, Tannille was successful in gaining a kitchenhand position at Pippis on the Beach Restaurant in Mission Beach. Her new employer Christine was impressed with Tannille’s honesty when she stated in interview that she had a disability, but also encouraged Tannille to focus on her abilities.

Tannille relocated from Ingham for the role and is enjoying the challenges of working in a busy café.

It was Tannille’s tenacity and unwillingness to be impacted by job rejections that led her to success.
