Employment Engagement Advisor and Outreach Officer
As an Employment Engagement Advisor and Outreach Officer at New Start 4U CIC, I am responsible for developing a personalised and structured pathway into employment by providing support and advice to each individual as well as building and maintaining relationships with employers, partners and local communities by attending relevant meetings, forums and networking events. In addition, I teach General English at different levels and also deliver various workshops. I moved to the UK 10 years ago and, at the beginning, I was struggling to integrate and I was lacking confidence so I perfectly understand the challenges majority of migrants face when they move to the UK. The main reason why I wanted to work for New Start 4U is because I’m all about helping people reach their potential and making them regain self-confidence.

I’m very excited to be a part of this amazing team.
