Fast Track to Employment

By Member, Jan 19 2018 07:41PM

I was unemployed, and came in for food voucher at the One Community. They asked if I needed support with getting a job as I had been out of work for over 3 years. They helped me to update my CV, and during the workclub, they helped me with setting up an email address and to apply for a local job with AMAZON online application process. I had to come back to let them know that I got a call from AMAZON to go for an assessment and I now work there full-time. I could not have achieved these results in such a short space of time without support with One Community. G Bing

This is my testimonial explaining my situation and my heartfelt appreciation to Bernice Barning my first point of contact at One Community drop-in centre. A couple of weeks ago, I found myself in a scary place. Universal Credit was refusing to pay me any monies at all because I couldn't provide a tenancy or written letter.
