COVID-19 Client Stories: Alan, IT build engineer

6th April 2020

Work Avenue employment client Alan was seeking a new job, his role having been made redundant last year.  He received support and advice from Heather Barsam, his Work Avenue adviser, regarding his CV and how to reach out and network, and also attended a workshop in preparation for permanent employment.

As the jobs market began to change with the COVID-19 restrictions, work opportunities became more challenging.  But different opportunities began to emerge, and most recently he has been working as an essential key worker, building hundreds of servers, PCs and screens that have been delivered to staff in a range of businesses to replicate their professional infrastructure at home.  Alan has played his part in saving jobs and supporting the economy.
