Renne

Started work for Career Moves as an employment consultant since January of 2021. For the five years prior to working in Supported Employment, I worked at Fraser High School in Hamilton, as the Gateway Placement Coordinator. I was in charge of all the senior student work experience placements in a range of industries, ran workshops on C.V writing and interview skills, and organised short courses for students. I have a passion for working with youth, and have a special knack for working with students who have barriers to employment and specialised learning needs. I have previous volunteer experience in mental health, as well as a lived experience, so I identify strongly, and empathise with my clients that have mental health barriers.
