Yasmin secures new employment after Kickstart placement comes to an end

Yasmin signed up to DurhamWorks in April 2022 following completion of a Kickstart placement. Yasmin was keen to move into employment and advised she needed support with applications and interview skills and to build confidence in these areas. 

Yasmin was quickly referred to Employment Engagement Officer, Jo Standen, who supported Yasmin with an application for a Durham County Council apprenticeship. Whilst waiting to hear news about the apprenticeship, Yasmin attended a training course with a local training provider to gain further skills. Yasmin continued attending regular appointments with Jo and Youth Coach at the Peterlee Youth Hub and completed sessions on interview skills and job search and soon after, Yasmin heard she was successful in securing an interview for the apprenticeship and was supported by Jo to prepare for this.

Following her interview, Yasmin was told she was successful in her application and is now awaiting her start date for her new role.

If like Yasmin you are looking to get into employment following on from the Kick Start scheme, contact the DurhamWorks team on 03000 262 930 or email durhamworks@durham.gov.uk.
