A success story

Najib’s success story.

Najib restarting his career.

Restart | 2 November 2023

What was Najib’s situation?

Najib Elkhattabi, aged 39, joined the Restart Scheme in late July after being unemployed for over a year. Najib has had previous experience in a variety of technical and managerial posts and had his future career path planned out, but his main barrier was struggling to find the best way to proceed with it, around also caring for his family.

How did Get Set UK help?

Nida Husain, one of Get Set’s Employment Advisors, supported him by reviewing his CV and tailoring it to the sectors he wanted to find employment in. Throughout Najib’s journey, Nida signposted him to live vacancies, suitable for his skills and aspirations. After being on the programme for just over 3 months, Najib secured a job working as a full-time Bus Driver.

Nida Husain, Employment Advisor at Get Set, commented: “It has been a real honor and a pleasure to work with Najib. He is a true gentleman who wants to improve his life changes with gainful employment. Najib has been focused from our first meeting and took all necessary steps that were suggested to him. He attended workshops, spent time reviewing his CV and attended all appointments. This enabled him to get clarity of thought and process. He was also shortlisted for a Receptionist position at The Hilton Hotel, however he chose to go ahead with the driving position. He has been working for over a month now and it gives me great pleasure to say that he is upskilling and expanding his skills. Get Set wishes Najib all the best for the future.”

“I wanted to thank you for the great service you and your team provided me. The way I was supported during our meeting sessions was very helpful. The financial help that was given to me, allowed me to cover important expenses during a tough time and made my job search easier. I’m very grateful for your support.”
