Vassie’s enterprising approach pays off

OC Connections’ Support Coordination participant, Vassie, has been enjoying her new job with The Information Access Group as a Document Tester.  

She started in the role in December 2020 after finding out about it through our Support Coordination team. Together with her colleague Lucky, Vassie provides thoughtful and considered feedback on client content to ensure it is accessible for people with disability.

The Information Access Group said “the in-house document user testing service is a new service and ideal for clients who want specific feedback within a shorter timeframe. We’re very excited to offer this service to our clients, as it’s an opportunity to gain valuable insight about accessible content from the target audience.”

Vassie loves that the role is flexible and can be undertaken from anywhere, as long as she has her computer. It has also given her the confidence to look for further work in the disability sector where she hopes she can help others with disability find the right support and advice. 

Her positive approach, drive to succeed and willingness to be open to opportunity are clearly the keys to her success.
