Paul's Story

Paul’s Story

Employment Solutions Client

Paul entered the Employment Solutions program juggling different jobs to support himself and his family.

For Paul, entering the program was a chance to find a job that was fulfilling and provided stability. Sitting down together to explore different career paths, Paul’s Career Coach remembers his smile when he first set eyes on the sterilisation course – Paul noted that it was something he always wanted to try.

Once everything was ready for Paul to start his course, feelings of self-doubt left him anxious about beginning something new and unfamiliar.

By attending appointments with a Wellbeing Coach, Paul was able to build his confidence and identify what motivates him and what gives him meaning. Paul soon became comfortable to take the next step.

“Before I started wellbeing sessions, I felt a bit uncertain about what I could do. Now I feel like I am embracing uncertainty better and feel confident that I can be part of the workforce.”

He has since found employment in cleaning while he completes his course in sterilisation.

Paul now has more time to spend with his family, and feels optimistic about what the future holds.

Sometimes, the barriers to work can be invisible. Building confidence and fostering mental readiness are an essential foundation to sustainable employment.
