Following the early closure of the Lighthouse Lab, Monika came to Skills Launchpad Plymouth to see what her options were. She was keen to secure work as soon as possible and was looking for a place to start. From the first time we met her, she had a brilliant positive attitude, and was always smiling!
Following initial conversations with our Construction Coordinator, Monika expressed an interest in the construction and engineering sectors. Following the advice provided, Monika attended pop-up job shops, as well as cv workshop sessions to improve her chances of securing work, embracing all the opportunities that were presented to her!
Monika has now managed to secure a job at Plessy, and is working as a Yield Engineer.
Most recently, Monika was nominated for and won our Construction Member of the Year Award! This is all down to her hugely positive outlook and hard work!
Here’s what Monika shared:
“I came to the UK almost nine years ago. I love to improve my skills, not just for my work, but for my community and my English language.
It was so nice to be invited to the awards. I am so grateful to have met all of the amazing team”
