LIZETTE

"I moved to the UK with my family in 2011 and struggled to find employment.  I was a Home Executive for a few years and because of this the vacancies I applied for said that I lacked experience.  The format of my CV was also not correct for the British job market.  After countless unsuccessful applications for suitable vacancies I got referred to the Neighbourhood Employment Programme.  The staff at the job club are friendly, professional and very helpful.  I received assistance to correct the format of my CV.  I also received assistance, guidance and advice when applying for vacancies.   Within a week after posting my CV on the online recruitment agencies I received job offers which I never experienced before.  This was all thanks to the NEP's wonderful staff and assistance.   With the NEP's assistance I was successful with one of the vacancies I applied for.  I went for an interview and got the job.  This all happened in a matter of weeks after stepping in a job club.  I am so grateful to the wonderful staff and assistance I received from the NEP.  I wish I knew and got referred to the NEP sooner."
