Our Employment service helps those intending to start or resume a career. The service provides support for those seeking or applying for jobs including help with CV preparation, covering letters and interview skills, as well as advising on potential opportunities for employment and career development.
The service also offers an eight-week training course, “A Clear Vision to Employment”, to help develop appropriate skills for applying for jobs and interviews. Working with John, who designed the course, the course covers CV writing, speculative and covering letters, telephone techniques, application form filling, interview skills and details further support that you can obtain through the service and through MAB.
The course allows clients to take control, determine a plan and progress in their lives.
One of our clients commented: At the start of the course I was very shy and unsociable but as I progressed through the course, I began to gain confidence and know exactly what I wanted from life. I found the course very helpful, as it outlined everything I needed to know to advance to other courses and future employment.
Another client commented: ‘Doing the Clear Vision to Employment course was a very good experience for me. It was important that I did it. It was the first time that I met people who have the same problem that I have. I had finished my previous job and needed to meet other people like me, it was a new world for me losing my Sight. John was very supportive’
