Rachel Holley, Job Coach

What is your role on Engage to Change?

My role on Engage to Change is to help young people learn their tasks and adapt in the workplace.  I help them understand the various roles and tasks in their chosen workplace and make sure that they’re having fun and enjoying themselves, whilst completing the tasks required to the employers’ standard.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I have always wanted to help people so being able to go out and help people firsthand is the most rewarding part, and seeing someone’s confidence grow in their own abilities.

What has been your proudest Engage to Change moment?

My proudest moment was watching my client doing tasks for herself without any guidance and realising she can complete her tasks.
