One applicant commented “Over the years I feel I’ve lost my confidence. One hour here has given me that confidence back”!
Dee Hartley, Coordinator at HMRC Blackburn said: “Suddenly the world of private industry doesn’t seem as scary as we thought it would be. Many of us have worked for HMRC for over 30 years and the thought of going into the private sector was incredibly daunting. Cummins Mellor have not only alleviated our fears but gave us a very positive, and well needed, confidence boost. The session was extremely beneficial and it was great to be given an opportunity for us to explore our transferable skills and understand how they can benefit future employers. We’ve all left feeling much more positive about the future and look forward to the next chapter in our lives. ”
