Judy had been economically inactive for several years after her own retail business was forced to close down. This set back knocked her confidence and Judy was struggling to get back on her feet, feeling isolated and uncertain of her future employment prospects.
“I’d been out of work for a while and feeling very low in confidence. I wasn’t completely computer illiterate but things do move on and I hadn’t kept up to date. I really felt that at my age I didn’t have a lot to offer an employer. “
With support from PRIME Cymru Workways+ Powys Project Judy was found a work placement in an office to help her gain recent experience in an office environment and update her skills.
“Getting a work placement through PRIME Cymru Workways+ Powys Project in an office environment has made all the difference to me. I feel much happier and more confident in my skills and feel that I have learned so much as well as getting used to working in an office again. Thank you!”
