After choosing to be supported by us, you will be matched to your own dedicated key worker throughout your Fair Start journey. They will support you through phone calls, emails, video chat and text messages, to help you find the right job and develop new skills.
Hear from some of our key workers, Claire and Aileen, about how they are helping participants on Fair Start Scotland:
Your key worker will get to know you, identify your skills and strengths, and if there are any particular challenges making it harder for you to move into work. Together, you will build a step-by-step action plan to help you get to where you want to be. You’ll have access to:
- Specialist support, tailor-made to your needs
- Help with job searches, CVs, application forms and interview preparation
- Training to get you new skills ready for future job goals
- Volunteering opportunities to gain vital experience
- Links with employers to help you secure placements or jobs that suit your circumstances and so much more.
For up to 12-18 months, depending on your individual needs and once in work, we’ll still be there for you, making sure you are settled and the role is the right fit for you.
We’re incredibly proud of all of the people we work with through Fair Start Scotland and their stories make for inspiring reading.
