True Stories: Charlie Newton – I found the perfect job for me through carecareers

Charlie NewtonI was lucky to find the perfect job for me on the carecareers website just a few months ago. I had just come back from an overseas trip and wanted to find some casual work, as I finished my Higher School Certificate last year and am having a break until I start uni next year.

For the past 5 years I have had some experience with the cousin of a good friend of mine, who has Cerebral Palsy. I have often been on outings with my friend and his cousin and I would help them out when I could. Through that, and other conversations I have had with my parents, I started thinking about what it would be like to work with people with disabilities.

As I needed to find some work, and also because I wanted to see what it would really be like to work in the disability sector, I decided to find a job to experience it first-hand. My family had heard about carecareers so I visited the website and did a search for casual jobs.
