"Having a job is so important. The last two years have been such a waste of time when all I wanted was a reason to get up each day, to earn a wage, and somehow to make a difference. Now I am now doing all three.”
Nicky, Board Sprayer, Polyseam
"The help I got from Ingeus was specific to me. I didn't feel like I was being forced to apply for positions that weren't suitable. I was back in work before I knew it and hope to be a Nando's manager one day."
Mylie, Griller, Nando's
"I'm delighted to be off benefits and back in work after getting nowhere trying on my own. Ingeus kept me motivated throughout my job search, found this vacancy and encouraged me to apply. My family commitments have made it difficult to find suitable work in the past but I can happily manage both here."
Sam, Activities Co-ordinator in a care home
“I have applied for more jobs than I care to remember. I’ve sent letters, emails and made phone calls but got nowhere. Most agencies were very unhelpful and they just didn’t listen to what I wanted. However Ingeus was different – they taught me how to approach an interview, how to write a really effective CV and they even referred me to their health and wellbeing team to ensure I was on top form and ready to work.”
Daniel, Team Member, Untold Horizon
“Ingeus took the time to understand what I wanted and matched my skills with jobs they knew were available. I’m now a claims advisor, working with customers every day. It’s refreshing to work for a business that is interested in me as an individual, and determined to help me get the most out of my job.”
Ian, DDC Outsourcing Solutions
“Ingeus gave me time – time to talk about what I wanted, and time to learn what employers were looking for. Not long afterwards, I was offered an interview at Redholme Memory Care and I knew there and then it was the right job for me! Having a job has given me back my self-respect. I feel valued and can pay my own way in life. Simple things like this mean so much.”
Karen, Carer, Redholme Memory Care
“I’ve lost count of the number of speculative letters and applications I have sent to construction companies all over the region, the vast majority of which never even acknowledged my efforts. That’s why I am so grateful to Ingeus, who helped me to search for the right kind of job."
Gary, Construction Worker, Forrest Construction
“Ingeus helped me in all sorts of ways, including writing a really effective CV and teaching me how to make the most of job interviews,” she said. “I lost count of the number of vacancies I applied for by myself but with professional help I have now succeeded.”
“Endlessly applying for vacancies without success was very disheartening but I’m so glad that Ingeus helped me succeed here – I have a good job, I feel I am making a real difference, and I can now pay my own way in life.”
Wesley, Carer, Care UK
“I knew I was capable of working but as soon as I mentioned my heart attack employers didn’t want to know. I was just about to give up when I was introduced to Ingeus and that really was the turning point. I was given hope that there was a job out there for me which rang true soon after when I got the job here at DDC OS!”
