Fighting multiple battles
“I have 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry and was made redundant two years ago, shortly after my father was diagnosed with cancer. I spent most of my two years caring for him before he sadly passed away.
“This really affected me and although I wanted to return to work, I was a little lost on where to begin, and with the pandemic hitting, it put my industry on its knees.
Moving forward with motivation
“My Job Coach referred me to Seetec Pluss for support, where I met my advisor Maria. I received fantastic support from Maria, who helped me see my transferable skills. She kept me motivated with regular calls of support and helped me to retrain and gain more skills. This supported me with my confidence in being able to move forward in different fields.
“As a result of all the support I have received, I have now moved into a different industry and secured a position that is varied and interesting for a great company with fantastic pay.
‘Looking forward to the future’
“Seetec Pluss supported me with purchasing of tools for this position, something I would otherwise not have been able to afford, which could have affected my new job start. Having this job has given me back my self-respect, motivation with life and a financial freedom and security that I did not have whilst I was on benefits. I am now really looking forward to the future. Thank you all so much.”
