RISE into Employment does more than just offer advice, it provides practical and hands on support to help you acheive your dreams
Vanessa described how she was unable to find work since losing her job in retail, but she said that RISE gave her great self-belief. She wanted to work with people and use her skills to make a difference, less than 4 weeks after completing the programme Vanessa is now employed as a Housing Officer.
“I loved RISE so much. John was a huge help in building up my confidence, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for work or a new career. The work I am doing now is so much more satisfying, rewarding, and worthwhile.”
Aks, a resident from Spitalfields Housing Association joined the RISE programme after hearing about it from his Housing Officer. Aks had been unemployed for 3 months, after working unsociable hours in security he wanted to find a new experience. Before even completing the 10 week programme he secured a trainee position with a Housing Association.
“RISE gave me the confidence to explore new avenues, and with the support of the RISE team I found a job in housing. This experience has been eye opening and allowed me the opportunity to cement in a new career. The RISE team are still available to help me, even now!”
