I support people in Ceredigion to gain the necessary competence or new qualifications through procuring skills and soft based training that they need to enter into the jobs market and help get their lives back on track. It’s rewarding helping people who are economically inactive, unemployed or those who have complex barriers to overcome.

It’s also my job to plan, prepare and manage the publication and distribution of publicity materials and organise and attend our calendar of events. My background is in journalism and communications.

I support people who are looking for employment, a volunteering placement or training and help get them back into work. I provide 1:1 advice and guidance, help with CV’s and application forms. I also work closely with our employment liaison officer who is there at hand to suggest available posts and she also has close links to employers in the area. My job is very rewarding and I get a great sense of achievement when our participants achieve their goals.

My job entails supporting people into employment by providing an individual support plan tailored to the needs of the participants. I offer 1:1 support with mock interviews, CVs and job applications and work closely with our employer liaison officer who has close links with businesses. My favourite aspect of my job as a mentor is meeting the residents of Ceredigion and helping them find work, it is a very rewarding job and I'm delighted to be able to support people in my county.

My experience starts with my degree in social inclusion, after completing my degree I started work as a classroom assistant and then went into my current role of community employment mentor. My next step is to start level 3 in advice and guidance. I firmly believe that it is vital to improve yourself and that there is always a way to progress and develop.

I have been part of the Employability Support Team since the project began and previously when the Coastal Project ran.

What I really like about my role as a mentor is meeting new participants and listening to their story. Building up a rapport with them, helping them to find work, training or voluntary placements and supporting them to achieve their goals. It gives me a great sense of pride when they find out that they have been successful in getting the job they want.

As a Mentor, I will work with you on a one to one basis, supporting you to achieve your goals and aspirations, not only within the workplace, but also with volunteering and training opportunities as well. The focus is on you as an individual, and we as a team listen to what you need, and work collectively to make that happen. It gives me great pleasure to see you reach your full potential.

As a Workways + Mentor I provide support to eligible residents across Ceredigion with the aim of tackling barriers that prevent them from finding employment. Support differs according to the individual's need and desire and I can help them overcome barriers such as lack of confidence, qualifications or experience by finding volunteering opportunities, training or work experience.

Participants who choose to participate in the project receive assistance with applying for jobs, preparing CVs, interview techniques, personal development and access to training.

I enjoy building a rapport with the individuals and it is always a pleasure to see participants achieve their ambitions at the end of their journey with us.
