“I’ve built my confidence back up” – Stephen’s story

Stephen from Taunton engaged with Inspired 2 Achieve, Cosmic and a Change Coach.

“I have worked in a few temporary jobs and then went into recycling work, where I worked for seven years but had to finish due to bullying in the workplace.

“I had been job-seeking without success since 2018.  Due to the short-term positions and the bullying my confidence had been really knocked. 

“I have had experience of driving work which I really enjoyed and would like to return to but there is not much available without a licence.

“I have had really low confidence and after applying for jobs and not getting anywhere I had become very down.

 “I met with a change coach after a referral and it was really good.  They helped me to build my confidence back up, look at different ways of job searching and also updating my CV. 

“With encouragement I have been able to begin training for my HGV and I am now very confident that I will be able to get work at the end of this.

“I have been very happy with the support I have received through my change coach and would not be doing what I am without her help.
