Before being employed at Gwasg Pia through Jobs Growth Wales, Steven had been struggling to get into employment and was signing on at his local Job Centre Plus. Through the scheme, he quickly found employment with Gwasg Pia for an initial 26-week period.
Steven contributed immensely to the rate of improvement within the business and was complement by his manager as “Exceeding all expectations set”. Which in turn has resulted in him being given a full time contract with the company after his experiences on Jobs Growth Wales came to an end.
Steven has been greatly appreciative towards having the opportunity to get into employment thanks to the combined effort of the Jobs Growth Wales scheme and 3SC. Prior to being employed, Steven had suffered from a lack of confidence due to the repeat failures of getting past the interview stage. Through the combined effort from 3SC and Gwasg Pia his confidence has taken a turn for the better.
“3SC staff has provided constant support and advice over the phone and email.” Had been reiterated by Steven on several occasions alongside“ 3SC has provided more support than I have had whilst signing on or consulting the Job Centre.
