When searching for a job, one of our residents, Meenakshi Yadav, saw our Pathways Programme flyer, prompting her to get in touch with our team.

The Pathways Programme provides one-to-one tailored employment support to our customers who may be finding it difficult to get into work.

The 39-year-old reached out for employment advice and Yasmeen Ali, Employment Advisor, explained the programme, identified the help Meenakshi needed to build her confidence and signed her up.

Following this, Yasmeen drew up a tailored plan to support her in overcoming the challenges she faced when looking for work.

Over four weeks, Meenakshi had one-to-one sessions with Yasmeen, covering:

  • CV writing
  • Interview skills and conducting mock interviews
  • Support with job searching.
Meenakshi’s confidence began to grow, and she was invited to a job fair in Wembley. Yasmeen was on hand to give her support and guidance at the event, and Meenakshi registered her interest with a care home company.

After completing training and the necessary checks, Meenakshi was successful in securing her first UK-based job as a Home Care Worker.

Meenakshi said: “My journey on the Pathways Programme was excellent. Yasmeen helped a lot with my motivation and confidence.

“The guidance and interview support that Yasmeen gave me helped me feel confident, and I was able to go to interviews without feeling anxious.

“Yasmeen is a very good employment advisor. She taught me how to increase my knowledge, confidence and motivation. My new role has given me even more confidence and I am happy to be working for the first time in the UK.”
