WHO ARE YOU?
Hi, I’m Jess! I’m the Youth Project Coordinator at The Network for CareerNet, currently providing one to one support for young people both online and (socially distancing) face to face appointments.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT THE NETWORK?
I’m brand new to the Network! I started in October 2020, however I have worked with the lovely team at The Network over the last year and I’m very excited to now be part of the team!
WHY DID I JOIN THE NETWORK?
I decided to join The Network because I love what they stand for and the way they offer creative and innovative support for young people in Lincoln. There are so many different routes and opportunities out there for young people and I wanted to be part of a support service that works one to one with individuals to help build confidence and discover the right path for them!
WHAT DOES YOUR JOB ENTAIL?
My main roles involves working with young people on a one to one basis to support them with employability skills and taking the next steps towards employment through volunteering, work experience placements and training. I also work with the girls on The Network team to plan projects, run workshops, and work closely with other youth organisations and employers in the city 😊 I’ve only been here a short time but I can already see how exciting and varied my role is going to be!
