21 year old Jamie had left school with no prior work experience and struggled to find a job.

Jamie was referred to the Work Programe at our Darlaston Jet shop where he was introduced to his advisor who helped him to find a suitable job for his skills and preferences.

Jamie’s advisor was able to book him in for his CSCS and CITB cards and he completed the course within 3 weeks. With his new qualifications under his belt Jamie was ready to start looking for construction work and his advisor arranged an interview for a trainee scaffolder role.

Jamie began his trainee scaffolding job with SSBS Building and Scaffolding Ltd in April 2016 and is doing really well. Steps to Work supported Jamie by buying him protective clothing and paying for his CITB card.

Jamie is now enjoying his new career and feels positive about the future.

I’m really happy with my new job and thankful to the staff at Darlaston Jet for supporting me to gain a new qualification and find a job I enjoy.
