Cholok Muorwell 

BridgeToWork1Cholok is a Bridge Housing tenant who joined the Bridge to Work program in July 2018. She had recently migrated to Australia from Sudan and was looking to find part time employment. 

After consultation and review of her work history, we decided to approach an employer with whom she had previously worked on a contract basis. She successfully negotiated another three-month contract with LUSH Cosmetics, working in the production warehouse with an option to extend to six months. 

She is very happy to have found employment with them again and we hope to help her secure a permanent role as we support her in her contract. 

Cholok is very personable and diligent in her work and is looking to possibly become a supervisor during her new placement as she brings with her experience and expertise from her role last year. Cholok has great potential, and with ongoing coaching and mentoring through her contract, we are hopeful that LUSH will provide her with a permanent position.
