Employment Advisor



“I felt that I was really supported and got some great advice. I was signposted to other organisations for more support with my health and to help me gain more confidence whilst looking for work”

I have a long-term mental health condition and have been supported by Status Employment. They gave me support, advice and guidance, and accompanied me during meetings with my employer. I am so grateful as it has been such a stressful time, and it has made all the difference knowing that they have been there to support me, offer me guidance, and to know that I am not facing this alone.


If it wasn’t for Status Employment, I wouldn’t have my job today. They’ve supported me in every single way through my job search such as writing CVs and furthering my education. My adviser, Carol, has always been there for me no matter what. Her advice was practical and she was never judgemental.

I very much benefit from the support I have received. Especially I have felt that my confidence to try new things (e.g. Zoom) has improved. I do not feel pressured and feel that the limitations of my mental health problems have been understood while at the same time focusing on what I can do.


Status has changed my life and got my life back on track as well.
