Chris - Managers’ Right-hand Man
While he was at NOVA Transition Richmond, Chris was known as ‘everyone’s friend’. He was the guy that would settle disputes in the training room and the guy whose family made cakes for special events so Chris could proudly hand them around.
And now he is the guy – in fact, the right-hand man for the manager at his local Coles supermarket. Employed in April 2016 as a service assistant Chris currently works 15 hours a week spread across five days. His boss says she couldn’t do without him. ‘He is reliable, trustworthy and friendly. When I walk around the shop checking on what needs doing, Chris is right beside me following up on all that needs to be done.’
The aspect of work that Chris enjoys most is the friendly people, both staff and customers. He’s also proud of being useful, saying, ‘They love me there. They say I’m always picking up after them!’
