Over the past 6 months RUOE has been able to recruit more than 5 staff through a Kickstart Scheme, a government funded programme.
At RUOE we aim to give young adults the chance to work on their skills, develop new ones and discover and work on their strengths and weaknesses to then help them get a guaranteed full time place here with us or elsewhere at the end of the programme.
"Since joining RUOE I’ve learned how to work collaboratively alongside my colleagues. By valuing others' opinions and inputs into marketing projects and events, this has allowed me to become confident in myself at being a great team player and helped me develop a great partnership with everyone in my team."
"Whilst working at RUOE I have learned how to develop my organisational skills. RUOE has taught me how to manage and prioritise my weekly tasks, which has helped me to tackle my workload more efficiently. I have also developed practical workplace skills such as composing professional emails and working as a team on a shared task."
"Joining RUOE I have been able to utilise my passion for drawing and art as well as cope with tight deadlines and manage my time effectively. Effectively managing my time has allowed me to cope under pressure, be creative and deal with stressful situations; which are transferable skills I can take away with me. "
"Since joining RUOE I have been able to experience a new style of youth work, comparing my experiences to THE WAY YOUTH ZONE and scouts, being a part of this team has brought me closer to understanding autism and how better to deal or handle aggressive outbursts. RUOE has let me build different team relationships and has boosted my confidence more than I thought it could go. "
My time at RUOE has been amazing so far. This job has helped me a lot, with things such as my confidence in running my own session as a coach. When I was younger I always thought about running my own session, but didn't feel like I really had the confidence to teach a group of children. However, with RUOE I have received guidance and they've allowed me to run different sports sessions, which gave me the chance to see where the kids' weaknesses and strengths are and where they can improve. My time here and as I get older I see myself more opening my Own company someday, teaching kids sports.
