Bill, returning to employment with the help of Foundation!
AFC Fylde Community Foundation have been working with local man, Bill, aged 63, for the past 3 months. After working in the same industry for over 20 years, Bill was made redundant which was a huge shock as he had never been unemployed. The Building Better Opportunities Team at the Foundation worked closely with Bill over multiple sessions, working on his confidence, job searching and supported him to put together a modern day CV suitable for getting him back into employment.
During the first sessions, Bill struggled to come to terms with his new situation and was very emotional whilst speaking to Foundation staff. After working with Chris at the Foundation and putting in lot’s of hard work and commitment to finding employment, Bill has now found stable employment once again. Recently starting a new job at ToolStation, Bill is delighted with his new role, feels confident about the future and loves the change in environment in which he has spent the past 20 years.
Bill gave a huge thanks to the Building Better Opportunities project for the positive change it’s made on his life and we at the Foundation, thank Bill for his fantastic commitment to the project and his willingness to learn and get back into employment!
