NEW START: Hospital gives Amersham job seekers fresh start to find employment

 Published on: 13th February 2022   |   By: Amy Pollard   |   Category: Uncategorized

A collaboration between Buckinghamshire Healthcare EHS Trust, JobCentre Plus, and Buckinghamshire College Group is giving unemployed residents in Amersham a new start.

The new six-week Positive Steps taster programme provides job seekers with an overview of the responsibilities of a healthcare assistant, enhances employability skills, and guarantees them an interview for a permanent position if they complete it successfully.

Mark Ferris, 54, made redundant from his IT job after 30 years just as the COVID-19 pandemic broke out. He is currently working full-time at Amersham Hospital and was one of the first Positive Steps graduates.

Mark said͗ ͞I’d been thinking about a career change and looking after my elderly parents had made me think about moving into care. I’m now in a position to make a real difference to people’s lives and feel really valued.͟
