When TURSA was introduced to Kathleen, TURSA identified a National Work Experience Programme with a local employer SUNST8, a pallet racking company. As a sole parent Kathleen was looking for a job that could fit in with her parenting responsibilities. SUNST8 assured Kathleen they would be able to offer her the flexible hours she required as a parent.

Kathleen successfully completed the National Work Experience Programme in October 2018 during which time she displayed excellent administration skills. SUNST8 offered Kathleen a position as an Administration Assistant at their Head Office which she happily accepted.

The update to this story is that Kathleen was recently named Employee of the Month, pictured above receiving her award with her work colleague Doug.
