I’ve always been a people person, friendly and proactive. These characteristics make a job in human resources the perfect fit. How fantastic would it be to help other people get the most from their careers, at the same time that I get my own back on track?
A few years ago, I lived with my husband. I had stopped work after a number of miscarriages and sadly, my relationship broke down around the same time. When my husband left, I had no way to pay my bills and lost the flat. I moved around for a year, staying with different friends, but I struggled and stress and depression began to set in.
I found a hostel to move into. Having my own space again really improved my mental health and I later started the 'employment preparation' programme which kickstarted my journey back to work. I applied for jobs but - with a gap in employment - it's proved difficult. Inspired by a previous job in relocation, I started to look into Human Resources. I realised I could combine my interest in business with my love for working with other people. Getting my HR diploma will open a lot of new doors for me in the job market. It shows potential employers my commitment to this career, and I know it will boost my self-confidence. I'm excited to grow in this field and hopeful I can progress all the way to consultant level! With your support, I can get back into work that I love.

Thank you all for your generosity so far 😁
Just to let you know, I have been accepted onto the Foundation Diploma in HR Practice and this Saturday I will be attending an HR Study Skills Workshop! 🎉
I'm extremely excited - I'm biting my nails! I'm actually nervous - I just pressed the button to set my campaign live. I am finally doing this and I can't believe it. I am very grateful and tearful. How can I say thank you? Thank you in advance for any donations. You have no idea the impact you are having. Wow.

Beam will automatically split your donation between every member with a live campaign.Support each member
Too often homeless people are forced to lie out of sheer desperation. We think it's better when relationships are built on trust and honesty. Beam verifies each member in 4 ways:
1. Referral: every member of Beam is referred by a registered homelessness charity.
2. Interviews: before their campaign launches, each member is interviewed twice by a Beam Member Manager.
3. References: we take references on each member from the charity who refers them and someone in a position of responsibility.
4. Profile: we take great care to verify information in a member's story is true.
It's your money.
We work hard to ensure that you can give confidently.
