The Jobcentre told me about the Skills Hub. I was feeling pretty down at the time and had a few things going on. The adviser who I worked with was really friendly. We talked through some of the things that were bothering me, and he told me how he could help me. He arranged to meet me once a week to help me with my job search and with my CV.

As I wanted to work in construction, he arranged for me to do my CSCS test, and organised some work experience on a site, which then meant I was able to get an apprenticeship earlier this year. Things have fallen into place and I’m so pleased to have walked into the Skills Hub… I very nearly didn’t….
