Jobs West would like to congratulate Victoria on her paid employment as a Prep/Packaging Assistant at Fresh Prep!
Since joining Jobs West in 2015, Victoria has participated in multiple work experiences and volunteer placements to build on her existing skills and learn new skills that she could apply to a paid position in the future. Month after month, Victoria arrived at every placement (often attending three placements per week) with a smile and an eagerness to learn. Over time, Victoria learned that working with children was an exciting environment that she enjoyed working in, but also found that food services was an upbeat (and delicious) setting to be in too.
It was through all of Victoria’s experiences at local daycares, kitchens, and bakeries that she was able to build on her existing vocational skills, gain new skills and make professional contacts that could provide her with excellent references for future work.
In October 2018, Victoria’s hard work paid off and she secured a paid position as a Prep/Packaging Assistant at Fresh Prep. Victoria demonstrates a confident and positive attitude in her new work environment preparing, portioning and packaging various meals for delivery and also continues to volunteer at two of her volunteer placements. Way to go Victoria!
