Restart Scheme

Unemployed for 28 years until the Restart Scheme helped Darren find work

24th Jan 2023 Restart Scheme

At 60 years old, Darren had been out of work for 28 years. He had previously worked as a groundsman for the local council. He had been on multiple welfare-to-work programmes over the years but to no avail. This had led to a lack of confidence and motivation to work.

Darren had poor IT and job searching skills, and he didn’t have a CV. Beverly Jones, his Job Coach from Remploy, guided him to create a CV and make applications for suitable jobs. She also ensured that he was checking his emails regularly so any replies from the job applications he had made were seen in a timely manner.

With the help and support from Beverly, Darren managed to get a part-time job as a cleaner at a local shop.

Darren said:

“I am so grateful for the help and support that Bev has provided me in looking for work. I love the job and should have done this years ago”.
