At Campbell Page, every customer has a great story to share! We caught up with ParentsNext customer Samantha to chat about her journey with Campbell Page from a stay at home mum to finding her confidence (and work).
We can all agree that being a Mum is one of the most important jobs, but when it came to doing something for herself, that’s where Samantha struggled. “I wasn’t very outgoing…I lacked self-confidence” she explained. Due to distance and health issues it was hard to find the right support from her network “I was more the support person to others”.
That’s where Campbell Page stepped in and from the first appointment things started to change. “After the first appointment… I had more confidence than I thought!”. Samantha and her ParentsNext Coach, Kiri, got to work creating a plan to help Samantha uncover her goals for her future. Samantha went on to successfully complete hospitality studies including RSA, RCG, Barista training and food handling and as a result, landed a job!
“Kiri assured me she would support me getting into courses and this made me excited about possible work in the future.”
“[Life has] improved now. [I] have a good job in hospitality which has improved stability for my family. My confidence has increased, and it has helped in [my] work.”
This stability, newfound confidence and opportunity to uncover her goals and passion have helped Samantha explore a whole new path for herself. She’s now completing an IT course in the hopes of pursuing a career in the field “[I] feel more confident in my ability to study and work.” When asked what her advice was to other parents who are looking to get back into work, Samantha said:
“Don’t be afraid to ask for support. I would definitely recommend Campbell Page”
