When Hannah’s employer put her on furlough during the Covid-19 pandemic, she decided it was time to rethink work. She chose to look for a new role that would allow her to use her recent teaching qualification but lacked confidence in her interview skills.
Hannah heard about our Future Bright service from a family friend and got in touch. She worked with career progression coach Helen Jones to develop her job application and interview skills and grow her confidence.
Hannah said: “Future Bright are professional, kind and helpful. There is no judgement and as long as you put in the work and have a positive attitude, they really will help you reach any goals you have.
“I have had a fantastic time with Helen, who has been so supportive and kind to me. We worked together through phone calls and email which has allowed for a brilliant amount of guidance and support. By having practice with Helen for interview skills, I know I can carry those abilities wherever I go and know that I can shine!”
Hannah, from South Gloucestershire, has secured a new job in a local school and is planning to develop her skills further by enrolling on courses in primary education and British Sign Language.
She said: “With Future Bright I have become a more confident person which has reflected in my work life and day-to-day life. I will always be thankful to Future Bright for helping me reach my dream job.”
