There is no such thing as a typical Bridges Client.
50% of our clients are women
75% of all our adult clients worked in their home countries
Over 55% are educated to College level or above
Most are bilingual if not tri lingual
Many clients who have permission to work have been out of the labour market for 5 years or more and so are desperate to re-engage with their skills.
