We are pleased to announce that we have 2 winners of the One Front Door tablet competition! Carrie and Corinna came into City Hall at the beginning of January to collect their prizes. We talked to them to find out how One Front Door has supported them.
Have you attended any courses that OFD recommended for you? How have they gone?
Carrie – “I have attended the employment skills confidence course which was very cool, and they even did a reference for me to enable me to secure a job. I received a laptop too!”
Corinna – “I haven’t done any classes yet but I have received lots of good suggestions from my coach Nikki including an ESOL course which I want to do and will hopefully book on to after my check in with Nikki next week.”
Have you completed any job applications / job searches?
Carrie – ” I have done many applications! I am now working at a primary school as a Lunchtime assistant which is great, and I am also working remotely for my old company in Hong Kong.”
Corinna – “I have applied for some roles, actually I have just applied for the same role as Carrie in the primary school!”
Has the action plan OFD gave you helped you?
Carrie – ” It has been very useful for me. The course I was referred too allowed me to get local information (off the trainer who runs the course) which has been great! It helped me get a job!”
Corinna – “Very helpful for me too. Nikki has given me lots of information which has been very useful.”
How can we improve our service in the future?
Carrie – ” It would be helpful to know where to go to connect with people who speak our language, and even jobs we could get where we could speak our language.”
Is there anything else we can help you with?
Carrie – ” If you have any Job fairs going on in the future please let us know.”
Corinna – “We can learn something from speaking to every employer at the events so yes please let us know!”
Thank you & congratulations again!
