I was referred to the Lighthouse Project via the Job Centre in April. On arriving I was greeted on reception by Carole who explained what the project was about and what the project could help me with.
I needed help with my CV and was able to use the computer with some assistance from Dave, who was most helpful, he put me at ease as he went through my CV with me, and with his support I managed to complete it and attach it to an email and apply for a vacancy with my local housing office.
I then met Pam who helped and guided me through setting up a Universal Jobmatch account I was then able to successfully apply for lots of vacancies and since then I have had a job offered to me, which I will start at the end of July.
I would like to thank all the staff who do a fantastic job and the volunteers as well who are essential to the smooth running of the project.
Keep up the good work!!! Thank you – Gaynor July 2013
