Tyrone registered onto our Love London Working project in July 2022. He’d worked in senior retail management but wanted to work in social housing.
Tyrone discussed his experience and career goals with his advisor and got advice on tailoring his CV for housing roles.
Tyrone regularly met his advisor; they agreed he would complete work experience. His advisor forwarded his CV to Hexagon’s Neighbourhood Team Leaders, so they’d consider him for placement or employment.
A Team Leader asked if Tyrone would be interested in a casual Neighbourhoods support role to gain experience. He was initially apprehensive about the entry level of the role, but after discussion with his advisor and considering his options, he attended an interview and was successful. His advisor provided a character reference, when one of his referees delayed responding, so he could start his job.
Tyrone has been working within our Neighbourhoods Team since August 30th.
Tyrone says: “I have always wanted to take my expertise and experience and cross over to housing. Hexagon has been a great support as I continue my journey”.
