Meet Nancy

'I’d like to thank the Love London Working team, not only for their guidance, but for also arranging childcare so that I could attend my placement.'

Nancy-KiakuNancy Kiaku, a 36-year-old job-seeker, has been taken on as a catering worker as part of the Love London Working programme in partnership with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. Nancy, originally from the Republic of Congo in Africa, landed the job after a three-day voluntary work placement at the White Hart Lane club. Nancy, who has lived in Haringey for 13 years and been studying a range of subjects including hairdressing, beauty and fashion textiles. 'I’m really pleased to have a regular income once again and be in a position to support my family. The course is really helpful and has not only enabled me to improve my interview skills and prepare a better CV, but it has also improved my confidence. I’d like to thank the Love London Working team, not only for their guidance, but for also arranging childcare so that I could attend my placement. I’m really grateful that Tottenham Football Club has placed its faith in me and I’m now ready to build a career in catering.' Nancy took part in weekly one-to-one sessions at Coombes Croft Library, in Tottenham High Road with her advisor from the Clarion Group, Saeed Jama.

Meet Brandon

"I think this is brilliant, and a really good way to meet people."

Brandon Burgher | Love London Working - Success StoriesBrandon is 16, with autistic tendencies and ADHD. He lives in a single parent household with his mother and sister. Brandon struggled at school, and as a result, underachieved at GCSE level. When Brandon enrolled on to the Love London Working programme, he was extremely shy, very nervous, and reluctant to speak.  He was accompanied by his grandfather, and was happy for him to speak on his behalf. After attending a series of one to one sessions with the Employment Skills Advisor (ESA), Brandon’s confidence began to grow with both the ESA, and the surroundings. They discussed both work and apprenticeships, and Brandon decided that the best route for him was to go straight into employment. In order to further develop Brandon’s confidence, and to motivate him to be independent, the ESA encouraged Brandon to attend Love London Working sessions without his grandfather. This was a major step for Brandon, and he was very proud when he came to the centre without his grandfather, for the first time. A further appointment was made for Brandon to attend job search sessions and interview skills. Brandon continued to grow in confidence and with support from the Love London Working team, gained an interview with Iceland Supermarket, and was subsequently employed as a Sales Assistant. During the follow up interview, Brandon said: “I think this is brilliant, and a really good way to meet people.  After three weeks I was put on the tills, and although I was really nervous, I was surprised that I could do it.  I was petrified when I first came to Love London Working, but now I realise that if more people came, they would be more confident and gain skills to get a job.  I’m so happy at Iceland, that now when I look back, I laugh at how nervous I was.
