Lindsey | UK

Waiting to get back to work

Lindsey had been out of work for quite some time due to mental health issues, she had done some caring roles in the past and was looking to get back into that, this time keen to work in the NHS. Ready to get back into work Lindsey said, “I needed a bit of help to get me back to where I needed to be.”

A long-awaited opportunity

Lindsey was searching online for ways to get back into caring and particularly for ways to help her land a job with the NHS, something she has wanted to do for a very long time. She came across an ad on Google for the Generation UK Healthcare programme based in Leeds, where she is from and went on to complete her application form.

The course and the support on offer seemed too good to be true, but Lindsey soon realised that there is a Generation team member there to support you every step of the way, to overcome challenges big and small.

It is never to late

The programme gave Lindsey a great look into what life is like on an NHS ward, help to complete her CV and personal statement, but most of all, gave her the confidence to pursue her dreams “Something that came out of the course for me was a massive amount of self-worth, don’t give up on your dreams no matter how old you are.”
