Working this out together: Supporting the workplace to support the employee

Jack Kruger, Julia Shumaker, James Jeffress, Rachael Cumming

In this presentation, Jack Kruger will share his various work roles since he was 14. He will describe his current position at Unilodge, where he works at the reception of a residential college at ANU. He’ll also describe his volunteering role at Lifeline.

Julia Shumaker, Jack’s Job Support, will describe how she applied Customised Employment principles to create a volunteering role for him at Lifeline. She’ll explain how her support role at Lifeline has now completely faded. Her experience with Lifeline gave her the confidence to apply the same principles to develop and support Jack in his current paid work role at Unilodge.

James and Rachael, Jack’s work supervisors, will provide an overview of their involvement in customising and supporting Jack in the Unilodge workplace.
