A client was referred to our service having been unemployed for five years. Prior to this he had been made redundant from his job as a labourer – the only job he had ever had. The client had been looking for work but couldn’t find anything he wanted to do. He was also the main carer for his Mum. When he came to us, he had low mood and anxiety, and was under a lot of pressure from his family to find work. As he didn’t have a CV, his Employment Specialist supported him in attending an RF CV workshop where he did a skills assessment and put a CV together. As a result, he was able to get a job locally in retail and feels very proud of what he has achieved.
