Client Success Story: Zoe

Zoe referred herself to Enable in February 2019 for help in finding employment.

Her goal was to find part-time work as she was already volunteering in a charity shop and wanted to continue with this. Productive as she is, Zoe came to Enable and took part in the weekly Job Club where she discussed different employment opportunities, interview preparation, CV building, and job seeking methods.

Following Job Club, Zoe met with Emma — one of the Business Development Officers — and she decided retail work in Walsall or Wolverhampton would be appropriate.

Accompanied by her Business Development Officer, Zoe went out visiting local companies and found B&M who interviewed her on the same day! Zoe completed a working interview the following day and was given an 8 hour contract the same week! Finding employment can be difficult, but Zoe’s work ethic and attitude really helped her with this process.

B&M have been fantastic in supporting Zoe, which meant our Job Coach only needed to travel train her how to get to and from work.

Three months later, Zoe is thriving at B&M, has a buddy in store, and is responsible for the health and beauty aisle.

Emma said ‘Zoe has become a real team member and from the shy young lady that started with Enable, she has grown into a really confident young lady. She even helps customers on the shop floor!’

Greg, Zoe’s manager, said ‘Zoe fits in well with the team and the buddy system we have has allowed her to feel more at ease.’

We’re very happy to hear Zoe is doing well and that her hard work is paying off!
