Michael was referred to the Work and Health programme (WHP) in July 2021 due to health problems and he met with his Employment Coach, Charlie. When he arrived for his first appointment, he was so keen to get back into employment and was really grateful for the opportunity.
During his induction meeting, Charlie went through the list of roles that our Employer Account Manager, Denise had sourced and they matched Michael to a Warehouse Operative role at Iceland.
Charlie identified that Michael was missing his Right To Work documents so arranged for an emergency birth certificate to be sent directly to him the following day, as well as some new work boots!
Michael was asked to come in for a paid induction and was offered the role the same day. Charlie sourced some funding to help Michael with his first two weeks of travel to work.
The Work and Health programme is funded by the Department for Work and Pensions and the European Social Fund.
