Upskilled & Employed : Disability Employment Services WDEA Works Shepparton

Kyran Dicker always knew he wanted a career in hospitality.  

Kyran experiences Asperger syndrome and was supported by WDEA Works Employment Consultant Kate Nolan to work towards his career goal. WDEA Works supported Kyran in completing his Certificate 3 in Hospitality, Barista Course and introduced him to the team at Zambrero where he is now employed. The kind of support disability employment services Shepparton supplied really helped Kyran gain the experience and confidence to take off on a new career journey.  

I have loved watching Kyran grow with confidence over the last 12 months undertaking additional training and courses has given Kyran the foundation to build his hospitality career” said Kate.  

 Kyran is grateful for WDEA Works and loves his work “I want to thank WDEA for their support.  Thank you to Skye and Lauren (at Zambrero) for making me part of the team and guiding me through the role.”  

Kyran’s manager Skye Tennant feels he is a valuable member the team 

He has given us the chance to grow as a team and a business, while we help him build his confidence and skills in the workplace. Kyran is often seen driving around town as a man on a mission delivering Zambrero to local homes and business”  

Having a job has given me a lot of satisfaction and achievement in my life. I am able to save and feel like all that hard work and effort has paid off. Having independence and freedom to be able to do something nice with my girlfriend or treat myself here and there is very rewarding” concluded Kyran
