Mary's* CV is back for employers to look at
“They have helped in so many ways, being on the Work Programme has been essential to the improvement my life.”
Mother of four, Mary*, previously worked in fashion as a stylist. She was contacted by Prospects after being unemployed for nearly two years. She is currently claiming Employment & Support Allowance after suffering poor mental health.
What Prospects did
Mary had low self esteem and few job search skills after being out of the job market. Prospects worked with her to improve her skills and build her confidence. Together they created a CV and Mary now feels she is at the point where she could put her CV in front of employers.
Outcomes and results
Mary feels ready to go back to work. Her ultimate aim is to set up her own business working as a window dresser. She comments about Prospects: “They have helped in so many ways, being on the Work Programme has been essential to the improvement my life.”
* Not her real name.
