FEEDBACK COMMENTS: Some lovely feedback comments from those we have supported into work:

“Zebra Access were very helpful and assisted me a lot to find a job quickly and during COVID-19. I thought it would be impossible after 4 months but I found a job with NHS, thanks to Zebra Access!” Ali.

I was amazed to gain a job in such a short time. I started my one-to-one support with Zebra Access and within a week they arranged my interview and supported me with interview practice, how to demonstrate my skills, dress code etc which I found very useful. I was so pleased when I was offered the job! Big thanks to Zebra Access, without them I would not have got this job!Richard
