Local Worcester man, Sean, is the type of person you warm to. He’s full of compassion, engaging, and communicates well. So, the team at Seetec Pluss were excited for him when he received a job offer. But their hearts stopped when they realised he’d need to wear a suit to work, and he didn’t have one. Dejected, he asked whether this was this the end of his new career before it had even got started.
Adam* found himself in the same position as 800,000 other UK workers who were made redundant due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He applied for job after job, but found himself lacking at interview stage. Eager to spread his wings, Adam completed employability training through the Restart Scheme which helped him to secure full-time employment at a local poultry processing plant. Adam is now saving for a car and is looking forward to flying the nest soon.

Made redundant at the start of lockdown, a Wolverhampton Warehousing Supervisor wasn’t sold on the Restart Scheme. But when his Standguide Job Coach told Jack* about a local role stacked in his favour, he was willing to give it a go. Just 30 minutes later he was interviewed and offered the role the following day. Jack started within two weeks and was able to present his new employer with the required FLT certificate which Standguide helped him gain.
