I like security work and I have a talent for it too. I’m very calm which is important for the role. And I’m someone who is always helping other people. For me that is what security is - helping other people by keeping them safe. I worked as a door supervisor a few years ago but my licence expired. With a new licence I can work and change my circumstances
I lived in London happily for many years. I worked hard to provide for my wife and two kids. However around six years ago, my marriage broke down. When my kids moved away my life completely changed. I suffered from depression, lost my job and then my house. I think I lost my trust in myself so things got very difficult. At the moment, I'm sleeping in night shelters but moving every day is tough. The night shelters will close in April so I have to find somewhere else to go. My support worker at the day centre referred me to Beam. I hope this will be my route back to my own housing.
I'd love to find an even better job than I had before. I want to save some money for my kids. They’ve grown up so fast and my son will be going to college in two years! I want to be able to support him. I don’t want to look back anymore. I want to get into work, do the job properly, and enjoy it!
