Help finding work.

Post by Dishwasher »

Can anyone suggest appropriate types of job and/or employers for me to apply to and what help is available finding work?
I was diagnosed with ADHD and Dyspraxia about 6 months ago.
I recently turned 30, have drifted between temporary jobs since I left school (which I hated) and have no formal qualifications.
I need to be realistic . Obviously the job would be low paid and not exactly exiting and glamorous but with the right guidance I hope to find something that Im comfortable in while I study part time.

I think the best idea is to talk to the Shaw Trust and explane your situation and they can help you find and get into employment - thats basickly what the charity does.

I am sure you can scuceed in the job with guience - that is the thing which dyspraxicis need when they are in some kind of work otherwise it can be verry diffcult and fustrating.
