Unemployed since 2019, John* has secured skilled employment following an extraordinarily short support journey on the Restart Scheme.
Wanting to work with his hands, Robert had been patiently waiting to work alongside his father on a large building contract which did not materialise. After 10 months unemployed, Robert accepted a direct referral from his Jobcentre Plus Work Coach onto the Restart Scheme.
Roedd Robert yn awyddus i weithio gyda’i ddwylo, ac roedd wedi bod yn aros yn amyneddgar i weithio ochr yn ochr â’i dad ar gontract adeiladu mawr, ond ni ddigwyddodd hynny. Ar ôl bod yn ddi-waith am 10 mis, cafodd Robert ei gyfeirio’n uniongyrchol gan ei Anogwr Gwaith yn y Ganolfan Byd Gwaith i’r Cynllun Ailddechrau.
