FINDING WORK: JOHN
John recently got a new job after a long and difficult search. Determined to find work, he used his support time from Centre 404 to search online for jobs, prepare his CV and arrange appointments at the job centre. All his effort was rewarded when he got a part-time administrative position at a council office. John couldn’t be more pleased.
He enjoys his new job so much he wants to extend his hours, so Centre 404 is now supporting him to look for more work, bringing him up to full-time employment.
“I live with my dog Scooby and take him for walks every day. My support workers helped me to move into my new flat and to find part-time work. They help me to manage my bills, keep some of my benefits and update my CV. I have also interviewed new support workers who join Centre 404. My support workers give me new information and help me with computing and the Internet - I enjoy watching old action movies on YouTube.”
