eter Lings is an Ongo Homes tenant and secured

permanent work as a Waste Operative at North

Lincolnshire Council. This was with the help of our

Employment Support Team (EST).

Peter was living in a bedsit when he first came to our

Employment Support Team. He described it as a horrible

place to live. But with the help of the EST he managed to

secure a tenancy with Ongo which was life changing for him,

he loves his flat.

Peter was out of work for well over a year when he approached

the EST. He was struggling to find a job, so Lisa (from Ongo's

EST) suggested he did some voluntary work in the Caretaking

Team at Ongo.

Peter said:

I was struggling to find work and after a long time

without a job it is difficult to get someone to give you

a chance. Volunteering was a brilliant way for me to get the

skills and experience that would help me secure a job when

one came up. This work experience definitely helped me get

the job I have now.

We provide lots of support for our tenants and the wider community,

whether this is helping young people into work, offering life skills

coaching or supporting people back into employment after long term

breaks from work.

Peter also attended the job club every Thursday. It was here

that he worked with the team to update his CV, apply for jobs

and work on his interview skills.

I'd recommend the job club to anyone. It was really

good and the team supported me to apply for jobs

and get ready for interviews. Everyone in the team is really

approachable and friendly. It has a relaxed feel to it when you

visit their office which put me at ease straight away.
