VW BiW2 Katie

Katie joined the Bridges into Work 2 project in August 2016 as she wanted to improve her employment prospects, and after discussions with the team enrolled on a number of courses including; Food Safety Level 2, COSHH, Paediatric First Aid and Improve Your English.

Attending the courses helped Katie to improve her self-confidence and she became interested in volunteering in order to gain work experience.

Katie was interested in housekeeping, so our Bridges into Work 2 Voluntary Work Experience Officer made some enquiries and was able to secure her a voluntary placement on the housekeeping team at the Premier Inn hotel in Ebbw Vale.

Katie began volunteering in March 2017 and thrived on the placement.  Her manager at the hotel was so pleased with her progress that she was offered a permanent position within two weeks.

Katie said of her experience; “The Bridges into Work team has helped me so much I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”
