A success story

Success story.

This JETS participant required guidance and advice in order to improve their skills and begin looking for a new job.

JETS | 26 April 2023

What was their’s situation?

This participant from East London joined the JETS programme after being referred by her Jobcentre Plus work coach. She had been out of work for three months and needed specific advice and guidance on how to find a new, long-term job. She hadn’t been in the UK for long, but her English was good, and she wanted to improve it so that she could advance in her future career. She hoped to work in the care sector, preferably with the elderly and special needs children.

How did Get Set UK help?

When the participant met with Chelsea, her Employment Advisor, she told her story and asked many questions. An assessment was completed as part of the initial appointment, and our expert recognised that the client needed assistance in reviewing her CV and learning how to begin her job search, as she believed these were the main barriers preventing her from finding new employment.

Following this meeting, a tailored action plan was created to ensure that all areas of support were covered. This would allow the participant to get closer to finding work and getting interviews. After her CV was reviewed and the participant understood how to look for a job, she began applying for different positions.

In addition to all of her assistance, Chelsea supported the participant with her applications for council tax and housing benefits. Get Set UK provided her with a Google Chromebook to help with her job search and courses.

The participant has begun taking classes in Maths, English, and Digital Skills, and she is very happy and confident that she will find a job she enjoys in the near future.

“I just wanted to thank you for all of your efforts and assistance. It’s been such wonderful experience working with you; you made me feel at home and always encouraged me; I must say, you’re a true blessing. I now have the courage to stand on my own two feet, and I can’t thank you enough. Thank you very much for the Google Chromebook; it will be extremely useful for both the course and my job search. I’m so grateful for everyone’s support; if Get Set UK had more people like you, life would be so much better for people like me. May God bless you.”
