Sarah attended the Work Club drop in for help with her CV. A EU national in the UK for a couple of months, Sarah had a lost her CV and wanted help to write a new CV and start applying for part-time jobs.

We supported Sarah to record her work and education history, identify her personal qualities and independently write her CV.

Using guidance, we discussed the purpose and format of covering letters.

After exploring childcare and family life, we suggested Sarah could start with Gorton employers and speculatively visit retailers with her CV/covering letter.

We discussed how Sarah could introduce herself and provided CV and cover letter copies for her to take to employers.

Sarah left to call into local employers before considering jobs further afield.
