I started to work for Fingal LEADER Partnership on the Tús Programme on 24th of April 2017. It was a huge opportunity to regain my confidence and to get back to work after about a 2-year break. Every day I felt privileged to be part of this great company, even if I knew it would only be for 12 months, I embraced this chance with all of my heart.
Meanwhile, I was studying Digital Marketing in Dublin Business School, I had the opportunity to practise what I learnt in Social Media skills and use them within the company, as they did not have a dedicated person for this work at the time.
In June 2017 a position for Clerical Officer became available and I applied for it. I was very happy to be successful in the interview and was offered the job (part time), so I did not hesitate to take it. Arriving at the end of the Tús Programme the company offered me full time contract as Clerical Officer and Social Media Coordinator.
Tús Programme is an excellent opportunity for all the people who want to regain or build their confidence and are thinking seriously about the possibility of going back to work.
I improved a lot of my skills, I discovered new ones and I reinvented a new person in me. I knew I could do it, I just needed a helping hand which I found it in all my colleagues that I am working with.
