Success Story

Job Centre Plus referred Mark to Liverpool in Work for support with putting together a CV. He was looking for work in security and had an SIA badge, but could not use a computer and he didn’t know how to use the Internet to search for jobs, or to attach a CV to forward to an employer. He registered with Liverpool in Work, and his Guidance Officer signposted him to Kensington Community Learning Centre to look into computer courses and supplied him with the contact details and directions to the centre to help him gain new skills. He also supported him with regular job searching, helped him to create a CV to send off for jobs, and uploaded his new CV on the Job Centre Plus Universal Job Match site, so he could have jobs sent to him on a regular basis. Eventually, a suitable opportunity was found, and Mark was invited for an interview and secured a job with 24:7 as a Security Guard.

My Guidance Officer was really helpful, I told him that I couldn’t use computers and that I didn’t have a CV. He sorted me out, and before long we were applying for lots of jobs, and he helped me check on the computer to see if I had been sent any jobs from Universal Job Match. When I got the job with 24:7 I was thrilled. My Guidance Officer from Liverpool in Work really helped me to get back on my feet, helping me with my CV and job searches, and I am very grateful for all his support.

Despite being unable to use a computer, Mark was really active in looking for work. He had his badge, and was hoping that the right job would come along. At Liverpool in Work, we were very glad to be able to give him the tools he needed to find work, and it was so rewarding to see him get the job he wanted.
