we’re delighted to hear some excellent job-seeking news.
Dave – a Facebook Friend from the Midlands – has been chatting to us over the past couple of months about his endless efforts to find a job.
Dave has been unemployed for two years, and as he suffers from Aspergers Syndrome, his search has not been straightforward.
But today he is celebrating, as his persistence has finally paid off.
Dave has landed a job as a domestic assistant and made his final visit to the Jobcentre!
The position may not be everyone’s dream role; but as he wisely says – “It’s easier to get work when you’ve got work” and this is the first step on his path.
Dave has talked about the joy and pride he’s feeling and says
“For me personally whatever job I do will lead to something. I intend to get very hard at work as soon as I start because there could be jobs at the university that I could go to. There could even be the chance of PROMOTION! If I am good at the job. I intend to put in everything I have.”
GB Job Clubs applaud this fantastic example of sheer determination and we wish Dave every success.
An increasing number of Job Club leaders are now helping people in communities without a job club. They talk by phone, meet for a coffee and a chat or use social media or e-mail to communicate as Jane has so successfully in this example. This is our Jobseeker Buddy scheme and is just as successful in helping someone find work as Job Club. We welcome new volunteers for Jobseeker Buddy please e-mail Chris@gbjobclubs.org or Jane@gbjobclubs.org for more details.
