Employment Success - Mark's Story
Posted on 28th March 2018 at 11:48
Mark is a 24 year old male from the Ballysillan area who had worked for Tesco after leaving school in 2007.
Having to leave work due to health issues in 2016, Mark moved onto ESA and registered with Extern who worked to move him into a place where he could return to work. With Extern’s support and advice, Mark was referred onto the LEMIS+ Project via Job Assist Centre Greater Shankill and was matched with a Mentor.
After listening to Mark’s circumstances, his Mentor firstly recommended the Personal Development course to help work on confidence, self-esteem and coping with anxiety. From here, the Mentor and client began to explore career options with security becoming a front-runner as there were plenty of available jobs in the sector and it matched the client’s interests and needs.
Speaking about the programme, Mark commented:
“Go, get registered and get help! The Mentors offer multiple training options and assist with Better Off calculations to help you get ready for work. I don’t know where I would have been today without the help of LEMIS+”
