Aishah started on the Love London Working programme in February 2018. She was referred to the programme by Yasmeen Ali who is the Love London Working administrator.
Aishah discussed her goals in her first appointment. She was prescribed a short course of interventions to tackle her immediate barriers such as her CV and her interview skills, she also received job search support.
An apprenticeship was identified as the likely route for her into work due to her lack of experience.
A couple of weeks after joining the programme the A2Dominion apprenticeships were advertised, Aishah was informed and consulted on which ones were the most suitable for her. She agreed to apply for 2 of the roles available, a sales & lettings negotiator and a procurement assistant role. Aishah was aided with creating a supporting statement for both jobs.
Aishah was successfully shortlisted for both jobs but was eventually successful with the procurement role which was her preferred role.
Aishah started on the 24th of April and is based in the head office in Paddington but spends a day a week in the Ealing office which means she runs into the Love London Working staff often. She has mentioned how much she is enjoying the job a few times so far.
