  • After 12 years, Bianca was ready to return to work, supported by APM Employment Services
  • Today Bianca supports and empowers her clients at Footprints 

Bianca’s story is one of great personal success

Her Employment Consultant Madison will agree.

Bianca is a proud Nyoongar woman, who approached APM for help re-entering the workforce.

After being a stay-at-home parent for 12 years and having limited work experience, Bianca was unsure what kind of work she could do.

Bianca connected with APM through the jobactive program.

Madison was able to support Bianca by talking to her about all her transferable skills. They worked together and everything Bianca had done previously were skills she could use in the workforce.

After providing a stable environment for her child for the last 12 years, she was ready to return to work.

And APM, along with Footprints Employment and Training, were ready to support her.

“Bianca was initially referred to us for a cleaning role” General Manager at Footprints Neva Macpherson said.

“We loved her ability to engage with people from all walks of life so much that we hired her instead.”

Today, Bianca is now studying a Certificate IV in Indigenous Mentoring and Leadership.

As a mentor, she supports her clients in the classroom and ensures everyone feels supported and empowered to succeed.

Thoroughly excited about her studies and her role, Bianca said “Footprints whole-heartedly care and go above and beyond.”

Bianca’s natural ability to support, empathise with others and show genuine compassion will make her a fantastic mentor.

She is looking forward to finishing her studies and begin working in her community - Congratulations Bianca!
