Huge Hull City fan finds employment thanks to the Tigers Pathways programme
Posted on 3rd May 2023 at 11:15
Huge Hull City fan Jak Waller has been successful in gaining employment after putting in tremendous effort on his professional development through the help of Tigers Trust’s employability programme, Tigers Pathways.
Tigers Pathways is a free six-week programme aimed at improving your skills and preparing you for employment, education, or training.
It is a bespoke programme tailored to suit the journey you are currently on and helping you choose the right pathway for your future.
Jak decided to explore the Tigers Pathways programme last year after struggling to find the right job for himself after 7 years of looking for employment. Through the support of Amy and Paul on the programme, Jak managed to develop his CV and Cover Letter whilst having support in applying for numerous roles within the retail sector. He also got involved in workshops such as Marks and Starts which focused on enhancing his skill sets needed when in employment.
Jak spent time over the previous years volunteering at HATS theatre and local football or rugby clubs whilst taking part in work placements to gain experience for himself to strengthen his CV.
He was able to recognise the positive effects that volunteering in his own time away from the programme could have on his prospects, this included gaining invaluable work experience, feeling part of a team and benefiting the local community, these are experiences and transferable skills that can be important to take into a workplace.
Jak’s hard work and determination finally paid off as he landed a successful role at Heron Foods and deserves full merit for all the extra hours of skill development which he put himself forward for.
Tigers Pathways Delivery Officer Amy Blinkhorn said: “Jak is the ultimate example of someone who has shown great resilience and a never give up attitude towards achieving his goal.”
Jak commented “I found the Tigers Pathway programme a great opportunity to find employment and Amy and Paul will give the support you need to help you find your career.”
He also expresses his delight on earning an income: “I’m able to buy things I never thought I would be able to such as treating family to gifts and I’m loving life with my own financial security”.
Everyone at Tigers Trust is extremely proud of Jak and his achievements and wishes him all the very best for his career.
