Tell us about yourself

Before the Learning for Life course I was job to job at a couple of bars and restaurants, but always on zero hour contracts where I sometimes wouldn't have a shift for weeks.

Since getting involved with Springboard has your life changed?

I find myself enjoying my work now and I finally have a permanent job with guaranteed hours. I'm currently a bartender and keyholder at Dawg Hoose. I wrote the menu and have been asked to buy stock. 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

I see myself managing the bar I'm in now - the owner has said that this is a realistic goal.

What tips or advice would you give someone considering their career options/getting involved with Diageo Learning for Life?

 I would definitely say to do the course if you're given the chance. You can make so many industry connections and you'll even find that you look forward to going to work.
