1. Ben

Having carved out a career in the film and advertising industry, I decided to change careers but had no idea what I wanted to do, other than something with more social value. I moved into employment and diversity about 6 years ago and am now based at Westminster City Council. I am passionate about getting people jobs that have development and a future. Jobs that leave a positive legacy allowing an individual to escape poverty and grow aspirational and tangible employment routes for that person’s family.

2. Michael

Hi my name is Michael and I am the business support officer for Families and Communities Employment Service (FACES). I am the first point of contact for new clients coming to the service for support. I help answer any question clients may have, I screen referrals sent to the FACES team and allocate clients to their employment coach within the team. I manage Westminster Employment Service referrals and logs, getting clients allocated to the correct teams, who are best suited to support the client’s needs, within the service.

3. Samater

Hi my name is Samater Hussein, and I work as an employment coach for Families and Communities Employment Service (FACES) in Westminster. I have always been a huge believer in giving back and helping out in the community and the world. As they say "think globally, act locally". I believe that the measure of a person's life is the effect they have on others, which is why I take pride in my role at Westminster Employment Service (WES).

5. Mark

Hi, my name is Mark Brown and I work for the Families and Communities Employment Service (FACES) at Westminster City Council. I am a specialist practitioner in employment and have been working in the employment sector for ten years, working with all client groups and producing great results. For me, the most rewarding thing about my job is being able to help another person to find work.

6. Pete

I’m Pete Murphy, Employment Coach, with WES. Over the past two years my responsibility has been to work with long term unemployed people living in the borough of Westminster. My clients are motivated, skilled, enthusiastic and ready to work, adapt and learn new skills. Our clients offer so much, however their time out of employment, their age, health issues and circumstances often hold them back from meeting their considerable potential.  My job is to advocate for and support each individual into employment, to enable each individual to progress towards a career, to access relevant quality training and to take placements that support their learning aims and aspirations. A bit about me… I live in Watford, support the local football team, have a maladjusted dog, and I am married with three kids. My likes are Wetherspoons, Jamaican music and discovering my place of birth, London.

I am a business studies graduate, with over 10 years’ experience in the welfare to work and employability sectors. I also possess an assessing qualification (TAQA), a teaching qualification (PTLLS) and an information, advice and guidance qualification (IAG). I am an innovative and pro-active individual with varied experience and a broad skills set gained from also working within the regeneration and education and training sectors. I am experienced in project management, creating partnerships, and co-ordinating, developing and delivering services that meet individual needs. I am passionate and a creative thinker, who is known to have a highly positive, can-do attitude. I view and treat clients and partners positively and adopt a person-centred approach in order to deliver tailored services.
