Adam, 25, joined the Fair Start Scotland programme, struggling with the shared custody of his son and mental health issues. He had recently lost his job as a technical sales adviser and was ready to look for work again with his preference being a working from home position to achieve a better home and job balance.
Adam came to our Dunfermline office and initially worked with our engagement consultant then had several one-to-one appointments with his adviser. He also engaged with the Health and Wellbeing Team to monitor and improve his mental health.
He managed to land a job with a contact centre but, after initially enjoying the role, soon decided it was not for him. Very quickly, he was offered a consultant role with ASA Recruitment. He really enjoys his new role as it allows him to work around his home life and his health and wellbeing has greatly improved as a result. He no longer needs health and wellbeing support.
Adam’s confidence and self-esteem have come on leaps and bounds and he even attended our recent Dunfermline jobs fair and is helping others to move into sustainable employment.
