Today is the one year employment anniversary for one of our amazing Community Connectors, Sharon Holz.
Prior to working for PDCN, Sharon had never been in paid employment and was struggling with confidence issues but with an opportunity to work for PDCN and the encouragement and support we were able to provide her, Sharon has said that the past year “has been one of the best years of my life.”
“PCDN is an organisation that I am very proud to work for. A person with a disability wants to live an ordinary life and be amongst ordinary people. When I got my job with PDCN at the age of 56 it was like being given a new chance. My role as a community coordinator gives me a sense of purpose, gets me involved with the community and I get to meet people, build networks and assist people like myself to believe in their dreams,” Sharon said.
We are very proud to have been on this journey with Sharon. She has become an integral part of the PDCN team, helping to facilitate peer groups with fellow people with disability on the South Coast.
She has described her journey as “a huge learning curve that has helped me grow so much as a person.”
At the Physical Disability Council of NSW, we pride ourselves on the work all our employees do, some of whom are people with disability. We are an equal opportunity employer, and currently have vacancies for several positions.
