Get Set for returning to work with the Restart Scheme.

Restart | 28 May 2024

How did Get Set UK help?

Yetunde and Mohamed were referred to the Restart Scheme that we deliver on behalf of our partner, Ingeus in our Southwark office, as they were struggling to find employment.

Yetunde Fetuga, aged 53, wanted to improve her confidence and boost her skills to find a job in customer service. Her Employment Advisor, Adama Daramy, created a personalised action plan that included career advice, job search support, CV writing and interview prep techniques and enrolment in our Skills for Work Customer Service course. Yetunde is now looking for a new opportunity as a customer service assistant using her newfound skills and feels more confident applying for roles now that she has completed the course.

Mohamed Kamara joined the Restart Scheme as he felt depressed. He had been applying for jobs for months without success and this was impacting his wellbeing. His Employment Advisor, Aparna Bindu discussed the challenges Mohamed was facing and suggested he apply for a temporary role at the local theatre as a first step towards finding full-time employment. When his contract ended, Mohamed was offered a permanent position at the theatre.

“I found the customer service course very useful. The tutor was very helpful and I felt comfortable asking questions. This course has made a real difference in my life. I now feel more confident applying for customer service jobs.”

“When I had my first meeting with Aparna, I felt very depressed and was trying to find work for months and kept receiving rejection emails. I am now overwhelmed with joy and would like to thank Aparna and the ERM team for the effort they have provided me.”
