How Talent Match got me into employment,
"After completing my Talent Match job placement at Changing Lives I applied for a job at Hesley Village and attended an interview. Thanks to the work based training and interview skills I received through Talent Match, I was offered a job!
A year ago I would not have been able to do this. My confidence has grown so much since starting Talent Match and all the training I had when working made me feel sure of what was to be expected of me at the Hesley job.
Whilst on training I did a number of different activities and assessments it was scary but because I had done safeguarding and first aid through Talent Match it helped. Also the experience I had working with the alternative education group helped give me an insight on handling challenging behaviour, this helped me to complete and pass my training.
I am excited to do my first shift at Hesley soon!"
