Feeling isolated and want to connect with others? Need help looking for work? Whatever situation you find yourself in, Jeremy Walters has a heart to help.
From his own experience of having to change career direction with COVID last year, he is wanting to help others. Jeremy was in full time study looking to progress to post grad study in psychology at AUT when everything changed. Now he is having a break, doing part-time work from home, helping with care of his children and also looking for more employment. In his current role working from home, he has become keenly aware of the effects of isolation.
The weekly Monday coffee morning has emerged from this experience. Ideally, he would like to involve a local pool of experts to give guidance of things like writing a CV, job interview skills, employment agencies, and how to deal with stress.
If you would like some time out to chat and find help, or if you can come alongside Jeremy to help others, then contact the BHB Community Centre or Jeremy on Facebook – search: Drop-In in the Bay. The group will meet on Mondays 10.30-12.30 from 26 July.
