Fabio with his MyGo coach Helen Graham

Fabio had lost faith in finding the right career for him after leaving his previous job due to stress. Frustrated with his lack of progress in applying and interviewing for jobs, he had all but given up.

Whilst getting to grips with understanding spoken and written English, Portuguese-born Fabio had started an NVQ Level 3 Apprenticeship in Administration. Unfortunately, due to a lack of key employment skills, career support and the stress of the job, he had to drop out. It was clear that Fabio was not yet job ready.

With an urgent need for some personal career coaching to improve his confidence, English skills and willingness to work again, Fabio worked with his MyGo Coach Helen to overcome his barriers in finding and applying for work. He went on to complete several courses focused on enhancing his employability skills, including MyPath, MyCV, a First Aid qualification and an onsite Customer Service Course offered through MyGo partner Opportunities Workshop.

With his new qualifications and training providing him with more opportunities than before, Fabio worked with Helen to find new vacancies in the local area, his career aspirations now firmly rooted in administration and customer service.

Fabio was successful in applying for an Administration position at a local Care Provider, where he was also able to pick up his previous apprenticeship qualification and continue towards his NVQ. Only a month later, after working hard and establishing his position in the company, Fabio earned a promotion to Agency Care Manager.

“I had a great coach who guided me to undertake suitable courses which improved my skills. Now I’ve finally found a job and I’m elated at having been made manager.” – Fabio, MyGo Customer

“Fabio has come on really well in his new job and has already been promoted to Agency Care Manager where he is doing all the recruitment for the office. Well done Fabio!” – Helen, MyGo Coach
