It’s always nice to receive feedback from volunteers or people we have supported. A recent example is Jordan who benefited from our help to secure a job.
Jordan was referred to us by the Jobcentre Plus, after a long time of being unemployed. He joined our 2-week Employability Skills Course – receiving help to improve his CV, learning how to answer tricky questions during interviews, and how to build up his confidence and skills set.
Jordan had nothing but praise for all those who helped him to succeed. He even made us a special thank you certificate! Jordan commented: “It’s not often you come across an organisation, company or person that cares about what you’re aiming for or what you want to do in life. At Groundwork, I spent two weeks getting to know others who were in the same situation which motivated me to improve and keep up what I was doing. At Groundwork I was able to improve my CV and interviewing skills while gaining some first class knowledge from people who knew what they were talking about.”
Jordan is now a night receptionist at a national hotel chain, with some duty manager responsibilities once he is fully trained. It is great to hear that Jordan has a job and that the course has greatly benefited him. This is just another example of Groundwork changing lives in the local community.
