An in-depth chat with believe housing’s employability team is included in the latest customer magazine, which packed full of news and information.
Some of the most common worries that customers have when trying to find work, or even just a more sustainable job, are discussed by the three-strong team, as well as some of their successes. The fully tailored support is available to all believe housing customers.
“We don’t just send everyone on the same courses or give them the same advice.” Joanne Brown from the team said. “And for some people the biggest barriers are confidence, mental health or perhaps even just life skills. We sit down with them and go through everything.”
“They might not even be unemployed. Some people on zero-hour contracts get a call at 3pm telling them they’re at work from 8pm … that’s not good for anyone’s mental health. So we look at how we can improve their career and find them more stable work.”
