Employment Success - Kenny's Story
Posted on 5th February 2018 at 14:38
Needing support to build his confidence, our client was low and had been in the same job for 15 years and felt worthless...
Kenny joined LEMIS+ in September 2017 and within 4 months turned his life around.
Having been in the same role for 15 years but leaving his job due to personal circumstances, he needed support to build his confidence.
Meeting with his mentor weekly and devising aims and goals, Kenny signed up to LEMIS+ Project's free courses - which included: Personal Development, ICT and the Warehousing Academy (Forklift, Electronic Pallet Truck, Manual Handling and Health & Safety).
With support and training, Kenny applied for a job within the facilities team of a well known Belfast charity and was successful.
"To LEMIS+ Project at East Belfast Mission,
I would like to thank you and especially Carla my Mentor!
I self-referred in September 2017, I was a broken man having been through a difficult 23 year marriage that ended. My grown up kids were my everything.
Then I met my new partner who gave me strength to move forward and with her help and LEMIS+ support I began to rebuild my life from the bottom up.
You all played a huge part in my mental recovery and introduced me to challenges that helped give me a new purpose in my life. You up-skilled me in fork lift licence, first aid, manual handling, health and safety and World Host and last but not least personal development!
I have a new belief and confidence in my life.
Thank you a million times over, I couldn’t have done it without Carla and all the Mentors who believed in me when I didn’t!
Kenny (the grateful Scotsman)"
