Tomasz’s Story

Tomasz is originally from Poland and has been living in Northern Ireland for almost 10 years. Tomasz had previously worked as a chef which he enjoyed but due to family commitments the unsociable hours of chef work were unsuitable. Tomasz was keen to make a career change and approached Network Personnel for help. He wanted to improve his English and gain qualifications in order to open up opportunities of employment.

Tomasz joined the Jobmatch programme and worked proactively with his Employment Coach, Shauna. They discussed his options and Tomasz expressed his interest in finding general operative work. Shauna was able to offer Tomasz counterbalance forklift training for free through our Jobmatch programme. He successfully completed the training and obtained his forklift licence. He also received help with the practicalities of applying for jobs – developing his CV, drafting cover letters, completing application forms and practising his interview skills

Tomasz and Shauna then began to search and apply for suitable vacancies. Tomasz’s CV was sent to Copper Industries for a position they had advertised. Tomasz was called for interview and was successful.

We wish Tomasz every success in his new role.
