Route to Employment – A Success Story

– Biniam came to Croydon Vision in 2017, he was a member and then began volunteering. He started to volunteer with the Talking Newsletter, which helped him to develop his communication and social skills.

One of Biniam’s main goals was to find employment so he joined the Working age group, there he gained crucial skills to help when writing applications and job searching. Biniam said “through mixing with the group and sharing information I began to understand that I am not the only person in this situation”. This understanding gave him added confidence to apply for jobs.

He wanted to continue his career in accounting, so he studied to update his knowledge and skills. He successfully obtained a certificate in financial accounting. Through his hard work and determination Biniam secured a job as a financial assistant. Biniam says that he is very grateful for the support which Croydon vision and the Working Age Group in particular has given him. Biniam continues to volunteer at Croydon Vision and is excited about his new journey
