Jamilia finds new career at The Growth Company
Monday, October 22, 2018
Jamilia’s department decided to go through a restructure and although she secured a position in the new structure, she decided it was time to move on and explore alternative career opportunities.
She had experience working in criminal justice, mental health and substance misuse field and private sector. Her last role was as a support coordinator in a complex needs supported housing project in Manchester for a large housing association called Great Places Housing Group. She was very passionate about helping people and organisations develop effectively and dedicated her career to doing so.
She had keen interest and skills in client case work, developing wellbeing programmes, advocating, tenancy management, customer service, project management and facilitating research.
Jamilia spent 6 weeks looking for work and found being unemployed very stressful. She thrived of having a full time job and said “I think being employed is positive for the economy, personal financial stability and positive wellbeing.“ All of which she felt she had lost whilst unemployed.
She applied for a position that Aspire Recruitment advertised on Reed and after an initial phone conversation with recruitment consultant Ellie, visited our offices for interview preparation and filling out paperwork. Jamilia described Ellie as “very approachable and supportive whilst I was looking for alternative employment.”
Jamilia has now been successfully appointed as a Learning Mentor for The Growth Company. She described the overall experience with Aspire as a positive one and would recommend us to others.
