Working with Inspira helped Kay secure her dream job

Kay came to Inspira for some support regarding career opportunities, she had no formal qualifications or work experience which hindered her job search for quite some time. Inspira referred Kay to a Skills and Development Adviser, Stevie, who offers 1:1 support for 16–24-year-olds.

After the initial 1:1 with Stevie, he was able to offer Kay personalised and practical targets to complete, helping her with her future career plans and ambitions. Together they were able to develop her CV to ensure it was attractive to local employers. Need help getting your CV noticed?

Stevie referred Kay to a Traineeship which allowed her to gain recognised Maths and English qualifications which are vital in today’s job market. Check out our blog on The Importance of Maths and English. She was also able to improve her employability skills but most importantly it was a great chance for her to participate in a voluntary work placement and boost her confidence. After some reflection, Kay decided she’d like to go into the adult social care sector. Kay now had the work experience which enabled her to attend an interview for a placement at a service for adults with additional needs and was successful.

Through her work with Inspira, Kay had found a career path she was passionate about and felt like she had a purpose.

By the end of the three-month placement, Kay had made such an impression she was offered a position as a full-time Health Care Assistant. This is an amazing achievement, and we are all very proud of the progress she has made over the last 3-4 months.

“The support I have received throughout my time on my Traineeship and my journey to employment has been great, I am thankful to all the staff at Inspira who helped me feel I am a better person than I was just a few months ago.”
