Aneta’s Journey: A New Start with New Start 4 U CIC

Aneta’s Journey: A New Start with New Start 4 U CIC

In the pursuit of a better life, people often find themselves facing unforeseen challenges that can knock them off course. Aneta, a 44-year-old traveler from Romania, experienced such hurdles after making the leap to Coventry in 2015, UK, in search of promising job opportunities. This is the story of her journey and how New Start 4 U CIC came to her aid when she needed it the most.

The Leap of Hope

Aneta’s journey began with optimism as she secured a job at a factory in Nuneaton through the CSP recruitment agency. She worked diligently as a wash operative, contributing to the community and her new life in the UK. However, life had unexpected plans for her as she developed skin allergies from the chemicals used in washing plastic trays. This unfortunate turn of events forced Aneta to resign from her job, setting the stage for a series of challenges that awaited her.

A Rollercoaster of Employment

In 2022, Aneta’s fortune seemed to turn around when she joined Quest recruitment agency and found employment at Avara Foods, a poultry factory.

Without the safety net of benefits and with limited English skills, she found herself at a crossroads.
