I’m Joanne and I work as an Employability Coordinator for in-work poverty countywide. I’ve been working for believe housing for nearly three years.
Some of my previous experience includes working as a Community Engagement Officer and Employment Advisor for over 14 years. In my last job I worked on mandatory government programmes, so it’s nice to work with customers that come to our service on a voluntary basis. I enjoy supporting individuals to make positive changes to their lives, building your confidence, helping to change your mindset and overcome any barriers you may face, as well as supporting you in training, volunteering and employment opportunities. Once you’re in work, I continue to support you to ensure you’re happy and settled in your role and if you’re not, I’ll help you to look for alternative, sustainable employment. Linking in with partner organisations, agencies and employers is also a key part of my role.
