I'm Aaron. I'm a Senior Sustainable Communities Officer.

Hi I'm Lorraine. I'm a Senior Employment Advisor.

I’m one of those lucky people who loves their job. I have great colleagues who are equally as enthusiastic about wanting to make a positive difference with others. As an Senior Employment Advisor I get to work with a highly motivated team helping people in Calderdale who would like to gain or return to employment. We believe in listening, in offering information, choice and guidance to others and aim to help others realise their potential. We strive to raise people’s confidence, to offer advice and enable people to attain employment and stay in employment.

Hi I'm Diantha. I'm a Sustainable Communities Project Officer

My role is to support and mentor people, assisting them in their daily lives and supporting with any barriers they may have which prevent them from entering the local labour market, education and training. I have several years’ experience working with vulnerable people and helping individuals offering support such as, health support, personal budgeting, benefit advice and confidence building. This role provides me with great job satisfaction as I get to see how much people’s lives can change with the right support given.
