“I never thought that I would enjoy searching for a job after so many years of being a stay at home Mum and suffering with anxiety.
“I was introduced to Richard on the Restart Scheme with Seetec Pluss. On my first appointment, I was instantly relieved to meet such a nice person and feel comfortable chatting about my life and what goals I wanted to achieve in the future.
“Richard gave me the confidence to search for jobs after asking what I had done in the past and what transferable skills I already had that could be used for other jobs. He guided me through updating my CV, assisted with cover letters and gave 1:1 advice for tips on interviews and did mock interviews with me. This really helped me to conquer my nerves for an interview after almost 8 years at home with the children.
“Every time I left my appointment, I felt satisfied that I had achieved something with Richard’s help. I also met all the other consultants, Aimee, Chris, Craig and Jo who were also very friendly and helpful. Jo was amazing and gave me expert advice and tips for interviews.
“The Restart Scheme gave me the confidence to get back into work and do something I love doing. They are such a lovely bunch of people who genuinely want to help and get to know you on a professional yet personal level to get the best out of what you want to achieve.
“Thank you to you all; I am loving work and have found a job I truly enjoy.”
