Meet Ricardo

Ricardo had been looking for work for 6 months before he joined SE17Working, now he has a new job and the future is looking bright!

How did SE17Working help you? 

SE17 Working helped me to connect with jobs and employers.  I signed up to the Pop-Up Shop Program where I developed  my skills further.  I gained a NCFE Qualification in Demonstrating Enterprising Skills.  The SE17Working staff helped with my CV, Job searches, Job Applications and Interview Techniques.

What job did you find?

I have has several employment places since leaving the programme including Burgess Park Welcome Ambassador, and Gardening Assistant with Quadron.  Most recently  I have gained employment at the Burgess Park Sports Centre after being selected and referred by SE17Working.

How do you feel now you are employed?

This feels way better than feeling unemployed - Overall I am very happy.

What advice would you give to others looking for work?

I would definitely steer them towards The Creation Trust SE17Working Team.

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to remain in employment and develop my skills further.  I aim to eventually work independently!
