Case Study

Client C tells how we helped them back into work

The support provided by Raise’s ENABLE services has been invaluable to me. After completing my MA in Social Work and undertaking a placement at my local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, I was very eager to secure employment within the NHS working therapeutically alongside children. The ENABLE services at Raise helped me with the entire application process.

The employment and skills advisor gave me guidance on completing the application to the NHS itself, as well as introducing me to the ‘STAR’ method- something I now understand many employers use in their recruitment process. The advisor very helpfully drew upon their own life experience to help me, and this instilled in me a sense of resilience. I had previously viewed unsuccessful applications in a negative light – however, I now see that unsuccessful applications are part of the process and help one build resilience going forward.

I benefited from a mock interview with the advisor with lots of relevant questions followed by verbal and written feedback to help me to know my strengths and areas for development ready for my real interview.

As I write this, I have now secured not just an interview with NHS England but a position with them. I am incredibly grateful for the guidance the staff at Raise gave to me, and how prepared they made me feel for my interview. The team went above and beyond, and I am incredibly grateful for being given the opportunity to develop my skills in the recruitment process.
