Customer secures their first job in the UK with the support from our Employment Advisor01 February 2024
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.
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.”
