Amy’s story

My name is Amy, I am 28 years old. I had the pleasure of working with my employment specialist, Ayeesha. In July 2021, my Access course finished so I decided it was time to get back into full time work.

Ayeesha helped me with my applications, and also ran through mock interviews with me, which really helped improve my confidence.

After my experience at hospital I had lost my confidence and she helped me to overcome this and see what I could actually achieve. For this, I will be forever grateful.

Ayeesha also helped me in terms of my UCAS personal statement and has encouraged me to go for my dream career.

I had multiple interviews and she helped me to decide which job I should take. I’m now back in full time employment and have been put on a management course.

I can’t thank Ayeesha enough for her support. I would not have been able to do it without her. Just knowing that she was there for support was amazing as I was beginning to get stressed thinking that I wouldn’t find a suitable job for me. After expressing my job concerns she was able to reassure me and help me identify what I was looking for. I couldn’t recommend her enough.
