Meet Graham, one of the advisers who helps to make our Cambridgeshire and Peterborough team so great!
Graham has plenty of achievements to be proud of, including having his delivery filmed to be used as training for new advisers - he's just that good!
He's tried his hand at plenty of careers before coming to us - including being trained in Interior Design, working in Wine & Spirits sales, playing a tune as a Professional Musician and creating wonder as a Magician!
When we asked Graham what he though the best part of his job was, he said...
"Helping customers make the small changes to their application process that lead to big changes in their life."
But it's not all work! You might be surprised to learn that...
Graham still performs as a magician in his spare time!
He also owns a Costume Hire and Party business, so call him up before your next fancy dress party if you need a hand!
Meet Julie, a qualified careers adviser in our Cambridgeshire and Peterborough team. She helps people to identify opportunities, understand what routes to take and realise their potential.
Julie began working in criminal justice after getting a degree in Criminology and Sociology, but eventually moved to work in schools with students who were at risk of exlusion or who had additional needs. She took the opportunity to gain a Level 6 Careers Guidance qualification, which is where she found her passion. Even though she loved giving careers advice to students, she decided to join us and started giving careers advice to all.
What is your proudest work moment so far?
"I work with a charity who support ex-offenders, and I supported one customer on his release from prison. We discussed his ambitions and possible courses, and since our first appointment he has passed two training courses that will help him toward his long term career goals. I am really happy for him as he was so positive and motivated and he really deserves the chance he has been given."
We asked Julie... what's the best part of your job?
"The best part of my job is when a customer gives me feedback that our conversation has really helped them, and that they feel more motivated or they had no idea they could do the things we talked about. To feel that you have moved someone forward and given them the confidence to progress is really rewarding."
