Working as a Koestler Exhibition Host changed my life
My lifestyle before my arrest was pretty chaotic but following my release I was determined that the years would not be wasted. I started looking for paid work and couldn’t believe it when I found an advert for Ex-Offender Exhibition Hosts. Finally, something I was actually qualified for! I applied on the spot and was delighted when I was offered a job.
Working as a Koestler Exhibition Host gave me so much confidence and was life changing. The work on display was inspiring, and I particularly enjoyed leading the public tours and being able to use my past experience positively. At the end of the exhibition I left with renewed self-belief and hope for my own future.
Being able to add recent work experience to my CV has been instrumental in helping me go on to secure full-time work with a homelessness charity.
