Richard, a previously unemployed Harborough resident, is now proudly able to say that he has been successful in securing a job, despite the current pandemic and lockdown.
Richard, who is over 60, was referred to the Work Live Leicestershire (WiLL) Project by the Job Centre in 2019 after he had to leave his previous job, due to a health condition.
Richard was given one-to-one support from WiLL keyworker Beverley. Together they looked at his skills and experience, and prioritised goals to work towards. This included attending several courses that are available through the WiLL programme.
“There was a variety of courses to choose from. I set my own pace and felt supported every step of the way”, states Richard.
Through his hard work and determination, and newfound confidence, Richard was able to secure a temporary position during the lockdown period and subsequently a full-time post, which he loves.
Richard states: “Being part of the WiLL programme helped me tremendously in finding my current employment which I am thriving at. I would like to thank my Keyworker, Beverley, for her commitment and support in helping me achieve my goals.”
