Why did you come to Môn CF?
I was told by a friend that Môn CF could help me with building my CV, finding a new job and learning to drive. At that point I had been working in a large retail store for a year and a half, but had decided that it was time to move on.
Did you do any training?
Yes. When I went to Môn CF I was assigned a Mentor who went through the training courses that were available to help me build a stronger CV. I attended courses such as First Aid, Health & Safety, Customer Service and Fire Safety.
What are you doing now?
In July last year my Mentor helped me to apply for a temporary job in Tesco, Bangor. After the interview I was offered the role of Dot Com Picker for twelve hours per week. My Mentor stayed in touch with me through all of this, and in October she came with me to speak to my manager about how I was getting on and what support I could continue to get from Môn CF. Since then, I’ve had a promotion – I am now a Department Supervisor with a permanent contract working a minimum of thirty hours a week with overtime available. My role involves collecting trollies in the car park for customers and working overtime on checkouts and on the customer service desk.
Having passed my driving theory test through Môn CF last year, they are now making a contribution towards my practical lessons, and I’m hoping to do an intensive driving course in March.
What do you think is the best thing about Môn CF?
I think the best thing about Môn CF is the training courses they have on offer to help people like myself find work. The staff always have smiles on their faces, and are ready to help you no matter what the situation is. Whether it’s helping people with disabilities or learning difficulties, or encouraging people to go for the opportunities they want, Môn CF staff do it in a friendly and helpful manner.
