Works For Me employment programme

Works For Me is a free  service for blind and partially sighted people  who are seeking paid employment, want to retain work through sight loss or are navigating a career change.

We support blind and partially sighted people to develop skills and offer advice to transition to the workplace, navigate the job market or further their careers.

The support offered is tailored to each individual’s needs. This can include:

  • We can also signpost to other specialist services such as counselling, rehabilitation or training

 

Works for Me feedback

“Getting in touch with Works for Me was the best decision ever. They gave me the practical help that I needed – but more than this –  gave me support when nobody else did.”

 

“The mock interview they ran for me was really helpful. In fact, when I went for the actual interview for my current job – many of the questions asked were the same.”

 

I always thought my CV was really good. I didn’t think it was old fashioned… getting that sort of up to scratch and rejigging it, that was the most helpful thing actually”

 

 “I didn’t know how to write a supporting statement. The Works For Me programme taught me that you have to address all the points succinctly. You have to showcase your skills while meeting the criteria”

 

” I enjoyed my mock interview; the feedback was great. Helped my nerves. This has been one of the best sessions for me.”

 

“Great session for my confidence, I would of wanted this support when I wasn’t working, so I could use the examples provided to answer questions effectively.”
