Tell us about yourself
I left school when I was 16 and was in and out of part time employment. I was unable to find any suitable full-time work that I enjoyed. I was unemployed for three months, before the job centre put me forward for Diageo Learning for Life.
Since getting involved with Springboard has your life changed?
I have now secured a full time job working in a local restaurant and bar. I enjoy my job and it has given me more confidence and a great opportunity to do something that I enjoy.
What are you doing now and where?
As above – in full employment since finishing Diageo Learning for Life.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Hopefully I can progress my career and be in a more senior position with hospitality.
What tips or advice would you give someone considering their career options/getting involved with Diageo Learning for Life?
Embrace the course, especially the placement, because although it was hard work it was very rewarding and has offered me a great chance of a full time career.
