Transition to Work Job Seeker Feedback

Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions is great. They helped me find the job, get ready for the interview and they gave me the confidence to know I could do it.


I started with work experience and it led to a traineeship! Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions Youth Employment Service is a great chance to get qualified and learn how a business operates.


During my time with Mai-Wel I participated in workshops, enrolled in a course and gained full-time employment. From the initial stages with my Youth Mentor through to Post Placement Support,  I have been happy every step of the way.
