For Anthony, landing a job with mattress recycling organisation, Soft Landing, has put a spring in his step. 

After only a few weeks working with the company, Anthony already feels confident and comfortable in the job. 

“What I like most is it’s a laid-back group of people, that’s what keeps me going” he said. 

“Of course on the first day I was nervous, but it took me only a few hours to learn all the machinery before I was up and running on my own.

Anthony has also just been offered full-time work at the site. 

“I’m working from 7.30am to 3.30pm and have just started doing five days a week. It can get pretty busy at times.” 


Soft Landing National Operations Manager Bill Dibley the organisation is continuously working with the community to open up training opportunities.

“The whole purpose of the Work for the Dole model is to up-skill, up-train and encourage people back into full-time work. 

"Ultimately, where job opportunities are created, we use WfD as our first priority of intake and we’ve just employed two of the guys who have been on the program and we’re looking at employing a few more.” 

"We have had a great relationship with MAX for many years as our leading WfD provider.” 

MAX’s Acting National WfD Coordinator Team Leader, Gary Hanes, said both companies have an ongoing positive relationship. 

“Bill and the Soft Landing team understand how to maximise real job outcomes from the WfD program and they are a great partner to have on-board,” Gary said. 


“Soft Landing gives WfD participants one of the most hands-on and work-like experiences the program has to offer. 

“All this mixed with genuinely supportive supervision and on the job training is undeniably uplifting for everyone involved and their passion for waste reduction is hard to beat!”
