I was first employed by DEAP on the 12th August 2013 on a Community Jobs Scotland contact for 6 months as an Assistant Administrator. My main tasks were sitting at the reception desk, greeting clients as they came in the door, booking clients in for registrations, making up files, answering the phone and updating the project outcomes when required. I was also engaging with the clients, helping them with job application forms and sourcing jobs for them. Near the end of my contract there was a job vacancy at DEAP as a trainee Support Worker for 6 months which I applied for and was successful. I started my Trainee Support Worker position on the 13th January 2014 and finished on the 31st July 2014. There was a short period of uncertainty about the renewal of our funding from Big Lottery, however, when DEAP found out they were successful in securing the funding for a period of 3 years, a position became available for a part-time Trainee Support Worker for 16 hours a week. I applied for the job as soon as it was posted. I was invited for an interview, a few days later I received a phone call saying I was successful in getting the job and I was to start 12th January 2015. In April I got an additional 19 hours as a trainee Administrator making my hours full time. This lasted until the end of October and at the start of November I became a full time administrator for the Angus Centre, based in Arbroath.
