Birmingham youngster Kieran O’Flaherty left school with decent qualifications but took it all for granted and saw his life stall for the next two years – until he got help from Working Links.
By his own admission he didn’t take school seriously and, despite coming away with decent qualifications, he didn’t know where his career was heading and fell into a life of drugs and unemployment.
But disaster struck when his mother died and he was forced to grow up and sort his life out. Kieran began to look at things differently and came to us for support. We helped him to find training to increase his employability and advised on potential careers. Within just a few months, he had landed an Apprenticeship in Warehousing and Logistics.
Glasgow man David Ramsay, 25, needed support to help him get back to work after two years out with back and knee injuries.
