Nena

Nena's Story

In the Philippines, Nena had studied and worked as an accountant. In 2018, Nena and her husband moved to Australia for a better life and to start a family. Initially moving to South Australia, they later moved to Rockhampton with their 2-year-old son, to a warmer climate and better prospects for employment.

Nena tried to apply for accounting jobs, but her qualification wasn’t recognised in Australia, so she started to look at other employment options.  Nena applied to participate in the Skilling Queenslanders for Work Program with Multicap after seeing it advertised on SEEK.

As a young Mum needing to find work in a new occupation in Australia, Nena was excited by the idea of being paid to help people, something she has always wanted to do. Nena successfully completed her Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) at Multicap, with AustCare Training as the Registered Training Organisation.

Completion of a Certificate III through vocational study has assisted Nena to achieve her financial goals. As a Multicap employee, Nena enjoys coming to work, experiencing something new each day, and supporting people with disabilities. Nena started working for Multicap in August 2020, and happily admits “Multicap has changed my life”
