Carla's Story

After connecting with Starting Point, Carla began receiving mentoring to help her develop employability skills, build confidence and access opportunities to get her started in the world of work. She applied for a place on a training programme offered by the Prince's Trust and a national retailer.

'I got a phone call this morning saying my interview was successful and how the manager was impressed with me. The way I made myself stand out and gave a positive attitude. I'm really pleased with myself. This has been my first ever interview in which I was successful in. I got told I was selected… the patience really did pay off!'

She made a fantastic start and contacted with some exciting news...

'I've just got told by my manager that they want to keep me on and offer a job! I'm soo happy! Things are finally working out for me… Once again, thank you so much! Couldn't have got this far without your support :)'

Couldn't have got this far without your support…
