CRESTMEAD resident Matthew Thomas loves his night job of packing and facing the shelves at Coles Waterford.
For the past six months, Mr Thomas, who has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), has been working at the local supermarket up to five nights a week.
It was through the assistance of the Red Cross College Employment Service, which helps disadvantaged job seekers find work, that helped Mr Thomas learn the skills to obtain his current employment.
"I am 31-years-old and I have been involved in Red Cross for the past few years now," Mr Thomas said.
"They have helped me out a lot throughout my time here.
"I am very grateful to the Red Cross for helping me to find a job because otherwise I would probably be doing nothing."
Like Mr Thomas, the Red Cross are now looking for more people in the community who need help finding work.
Red Cross College Employment Service site manager Liz Patane said the aim of the program was to assist jobseekers in meeting employer's requirements and offer training and educational programs.
"We find out what job seekers can do, not what they can't do," Ms Patane said.
"We start out with the person and then find the job to match."
