Language barrier was main problem for Mohammed. He had been job searching for 2 years but had No suitable CV and no support when job searching. He wanted a job for financial gain and to contribute to the state, and not being dependant on Job Seekers allowance.
We helped Mohammed by finding suitable courses, enhancing his English, creating an up to date CV and covering letters, job searching and applying for work at appointments and in Mohammed’s absence, with his consent and able to keep his morale up when he was feeling down in his job search.
Mohammed did not speak good English when he first engaged on the Work Programme resulting in him lacking in confidence and feeling alone in his job search he had qualifications and work experience from his own country but they were not applicable here.
We created a suitable CV using the skills and experience he had and referred onto suitable courses to improve his English and boost his confidence resulting in him being able to go to interview for jobs and finding one that he enjoys.
