Lucy secures a new job

Lucy joined the Bristol Supported Internship Programme (B-SiP) in September 2016. She was a little unsure about joining at first, but her brother had got a job in a local nursery after being an intern on the Bristol Project Search internship. Having done some work experience in a hotel, whilst at college, Lucy knew she enjoyed Hotel work and wondered if she might like to work in a hotel after Project Search.

Her job coach from Sixteen Co-operative Ltd suggested that she might like to have her first rotation at the Holiday Inn Hotel. Lucy agreed and she started working as a food and beverage assistant.

Lucy really enjoyed working as a food and beverage assistant and very quickly learnt the job with the help of her job coach. Feedback from the employer was positive with one of her colleagues commenting "She is doing very well; she knows what to do and is very good at it. We really like working with her."

Lucy did so well that she was quickly offered a job by the Food and Beverage Manager. Lucy started work on the13th January as a Food and Beverage assistant. She sometimes has to get up very early, but still enjoys her new job.

Lucy said "I enjoy working with the customers and having a laugh and joke with them. It's been good to meet new people and make friends with the other staff."

Lucy was the first of this year's supported internship participants to start paid employment and is a great example of the benefits of Supported Employment
