Client Testimonials

  • Terry Weatherby

    Warehouse Assistant, Norman Brothers Haulage

    ETC helped me with everything when I was looking for work. Jacqui and Ashley have been like friends to me right through. They also put me through a Forklift course to help with my new job after my existing license had expired.

  • Terry Degnan

    Fat Fish, Bonny Hills

    It was challenging to find work at first with my disability. Even though I had the experience and qualifications in the transport industry, I couldn’t return to this because of the safety issues. Thanks to the help of ETC I was able to secure employment with the Fat Fish and it’s worked out terrific. Ashley at ETC has been with me through the whole exercise. I am grateful for his help and for my employer Karyn being so accommodating to my specific needs.

  • George Lewis

    Cafe Assistant, Café 8

    Before my accident, I was working in the Aged Care industry but I didn’t feel comfortable returning to that line of work due to my injury. ETC helped me to tweak my resume, write cover letters and work on some strategies to find me a suitable job. I cannot thank ETC enough for all the help and support provided over my unemployment period!

  • Michelle Graham

    Showroom Hostess & Personal Assistant, Designer Living Kitchens

    Centrelink asked me to go and see ETC to help me as part of the Disability Employment Service. When I saw Ashley at ETC, he knew that I was unable to return to my full-time employment as I couldn’t stand for long periods of time. So he sat down with me and worked out what my abilities were, helped me with my resume, clothing for my interview and suitable shoes for me to work in every day. The service and support from Ashley and the team at ETC has been absolutely fantastic!
