Brayden - Award-wage employment for Brayden
Another young man now in employment through NOVA Transition Richmond is Brayden. After trialing a number of industries, Brayden gained work experience in the laundry of a local nursing home. This job suited him well as he likes order in his life and enjoyed working with the other staff. They enjoyed him being there as well and could see he was trying his hardest, improving his skills and also learning new ones.
Brayden’s work experience evolved into paid employment. Now he works two shifts per week folding towels and clothes, emptying driers, sorting clothing and delivering clean laundry to the residents. For Brayden, the best aspect of work is earning money so that he can save.
NOVA Employment CEO Martin Wren says that the vast majority of NOVA Transition graduates find award-wage work in the general community: ‘Here’s another person who NOVA has helped to become a tax payer. It’s good to have a reason to get out of bed in the morning, and it’s even better if that reason pays you an award wage.’
