Why did you come to Môn CF?
I wanted to get back into work so I went to Môn CF to get training and improve my skills.
Did you do any training?
Yes, I did First Aid, Health & Safety, Manual Handling, Fire Safety and Mental Health First Aid. Môn CF also helped me get my CCNSG Safety Passport and Lantra Dumper Truck certificate, which improved my chances of securing long-term employment in the construction industry.
Did you do any volunteering or work experience?
If I’m honest, I wasn’t keen on the idea of volunteering at first, but I’ve since completed a work trial prior to being taken on by my current employer, and I thrived on the challenge of working hard and showing willing to learn.
What are you doing now?
A three week period of agency work in May coupled with the support of my Môn CF Mentor gave me the motivation to find a more permanent job. I have been working for AMP Construction since July, and I’m really happy there. I am a Groundworks Labourer on various construction sites around North Wales.
What do you think is the best thing about Môn CF?
I was given the time and help I needed to find the job I really wanted. My Mentor believed in me, motivated me and gave me that extra push.
