Kirsty's Gap story
Gaining support from The Prince's Trust through a retail programme, Kirsty managed to overcome a lack of confidence to secure a job with Gap.
"I discovered The Prince’s Trust at my Job Centre. I hadn’t thought about them or the idea of working in retail before, but my job coach encouraged me to go for it and I’m so pleased I did! In fact, it was the best thing I’ve done. At the time, I was looking for work but struggling with confidence and this helped change that for me!
"Working with The Prince’s Trust made me believe in myself so much more and supported me with my confidence. It was really good to meet new people on the programme and we all learnt new skills every day, so that we were ready to interview for roles. I was so delighted to land my job at Gap and I haven’t looked back since!
"If you are thinking about supporting The Prince’s Trust and want to get involved – then definitely do! It helps change the lives of young people who wouldn't normally have the opportunities. I can certainly say it changed my life. Good luck to everyone taking on Future Steps!
