How can GroceryAid help?
Here’s what a grocery colleague who recently used the Renovo service had to say:
support started off on a basic level as I have never had to search for a job
before. The support addressed my lack of confidence and lack of know-how.
My coach always promoted independence and wanted me to deal with my issues and
frustration whilst monitoring and coaching me in the background. I would most certainly
recommend the support”
