Budget Energy, based in Springtown Industrial Estate are working with Supported Employment Solutions to support people into employment. Gavin had started on the Work Connect Programme in December 2015 and due to a health condition he had been unemployed for several years.
To help meet the criteria for a position within a call centre, Gavin had to gain relevant recent work experience and Budget Energy allowed Gavin to complete a work placement leading to the offer of a full time job. Gavin has now commenced part time employment with Budget Energy and gets support from his Employment Officer to ensure he achieves his potential.
SES have been on hand to support both Budget Energy and Gavin from the beginning of the placement through to employment.
Edward Taylor, Customer Services Manager approves; ‘Gavin is enjoying his employment so far and Budget Energy have enjoyed the extra resources and advice from Supported Employment Solutions. As well as checking in with his progress she also asked us what she can do for us and how she can best support us to get the most from this opportunity.
