Aaron Harris, 27 had been out of work for about a year when he joined the Working Futures Programme run by Everton in the Community.
He had experience of administration work but his period of unemployment knocked his confidence and when he joined the programme he lacked the motivation and skills for effective job search.
With the support of his tutor and others on the programme, Aaron started to feel better about looking for work. He also completed a training course to enhance his leadership skills. With his confidence improved, Aaron started to apply for jobs and getting interviews.
Working Futures staff offered valuable interview practice and constructive feedback, which meant it wasn’t long before Aaron was successful in securing work with the Civil Service.
“If you don’t give it a chance you will never know what you could achieve.”
