The day consists of profiling clients with learning disabilities and mental health issues, creating CV's, searching for suitable job opportunities, negotiating with employers and building networks,
I learned a great deal about diversity and how no matter how hard things seem there is always hope of improving your life.
Unfortunately the reorganization is going through another restructure and this has had an impact on some of the management and how it functions.
My co-workers were very committed and professional on the whole and most are a genuine pleasure to work with.
The hardest part of my role is trying to match clients to jobs and then encouraging employers to firstly give them an chance to prove themselves but also to get them to make adjustments to facilitate the clients specific needs.
I managed to secure employment for many clients and to see the change which getting a paid job often for the first time makes to them is by far the most satifying and rewarding part of the job.
