WHiST are pleased to welcome Ann Cowey to the new role of Employment Coach.

Ann has much experience in supporting women with building their confidence, helping them feel ready for employment, job searching and accessing training opportunities.

Having worked several years for a Women’s Project, she understands the issues and challenges that women experience including when they are thinking about their job prospects.

If you want to meet Ann for a confidential chat and to find out how she can help, she is working full time at WHiST and can offer you up to 18 months support.

She will be pleased to meet you so that you can discuss eligibility and whether this is a suitable programme for you. Ann can also signpost you to other agencies who offer guidance and support.

Her work is in partnership with the Wise Steps Project, part of the Building Better Opportunities programme which brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social fund.
