When Naz came to ANTA she was out of work after moving to Telford from London. It soon became apparent that her VISA enabling her to work in the UK was in an expired passport, so she needed a biometric ID card to ensure she had the correct legal documentation.
To help her overcome this barrier into employment, we were able to fund the cost of the ID card for her and help her with collating the required evidence for the application to the Home Office.
Without a job, the cost of living was taking its toll. Our Learner Mentor Lynsey guided Naz through the process of applying to a trust fund to help make her water and utility bills more manageable, as well as offering advice on staying on top of her finances.
With her right to work evidence now up to date, Naz undertook numerous fully funded training courses to increase her skillset and raise her confidence levels. We worked closely with her to hone her CV and interview skills and we’re delighted to share that Naz has now secured a permanent role with B&M.
Naz says “I’m not sure I would have found employment without ANTA’s help. Lynsey is a lovely lady and she went above and beyond to support me. She’s brilliant! Thank you so much”
We were able to support Naz with to funding from the Building Better Opportunnities (BBO) scheme, the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
