Newtownabbey man Ian, had been unemployed for almost 11 years – a period in which he became the full-time carer for his mother-in-law and then his own mother. 
 
Ian wanted to get back into employment for financial reasons but after being out of the loop for so long he lacked the knowledge and confidence to apply for jobs, his CV was out of date and his last interview had been in 2002. 
 
Matched with a Mentor, we worked with Ian to agree on an action plan that would focus on confidence building, CV and application assistance and interview preparation.  
 
Strengthening his CV and experience, Ian signed up to free training programmes in First Aid, Welcome Host, SIA and CCTV License – ultimately securing a job with a security company. 
Advocating the LEMIS+ experience, Ian commented: 
 
“My advice to someone would be to go and ask for help. I had no idea how to get back into employment or how to find training but my Mentor helped me with my confidence and worked with me to gain the skills I needed to get back into employment.”
