Steps to Work

12 months ago Anthony suddenly found himself out of work after being employed for 25 years. Being made redundant was a big blow and to him and his family and securing employment was proving to be very different from when Anthony last looked for a job. Anthony was becoming increasingly disheartened due to his lack of success and his JCP Adviser referred him to Steps to Work as part of the Work Programme (West Midlands) Contract.

Anthony arrived on the WP with excellent references and attitude, he was very enthusiastic about getting back into work and was looking forward to getting started. The team helped Anthony update his skills, mainly through job search support and he was also able to access Money Advice Service support.

After a little over a month of attending, Anthony secured employment with a Public House Supplies company. He was delighted with the new role and is able to support his family again.
