"Prior to joining the R2W programme, I had been unemployed for 9 months following redundancy. I had also suffered with my health, which had caused me to be out of work for longer than I hoped. This had really knocked my confidence and gaining employment was becoming increasingly difficult".
What did you gain from the Ready2Work programme?
"Interacting with people is something I have always struggled with. This placement gave me the opportunity to interact with a whole host of people, from the receptionists to HR Director's! This is still something I am learning to do, but I am far more confident and I’m able to build a good rapport with most in the office.
I also was lucky enough to gain employment following my placement. I now work 3 days a week within the Post Room and really enjoy my job".
"Continue to learn and develop my career at Volvo and take every day as it comes".
