Career Development Case Study

Please be aware that we have changed the names in this case study as well as some of the circumstances. Client confidentiality is of utmost importance to us in all things we do.

John was fed up – he was in a dead end job, working in a factory. He wanted to move in with his girlfriend but they could not afford it, so he decided to do something about it. He came to the Portland Centre. We talked to him about his dream job – he wanted to work in an office, but had no skills.

We researched relevant courses which he could undertake whilst working and earning a living. Very soon he had IT, Maths and English qualifications and was ready to search for the perfect job. We helped him with his search, his CV and applications. He now works in Weymouth as an Administrator and has a lovely flat with his wife and baby.
