“(Workplace staff) are able to give high quality support, advice and guidance to help candidates with a wide range of abilities and challenges to achieve their full potential.”
Paul first came to us when he was looking to begin studying for a postgraduate degree. Already used to breaking down barriers and challenging stereotypes, with the help of a referral from us, Paul became the first deaf person to be awarded a fully funded scholarship to study a Master of Science degree in Diplomacy, Statecraft and Foreign Policy at Loughborough University, London.
After graduation Paul once again used our services to help with job applications. With our support as well as his own drive, he quickly secured a position as an Assistant Project Manager at the Global Disability Hub. A role where he can help improve the everyday lives of others with disabilities.
Paul recommends Workplace for people across Newham. “I encourage any Newham resident looking to start or improve their career to register with this free and friendly service.”
