Marcus began his journey with Employability Services following his attendance at the ‘I Care Event’ in September 2018. Marcus was very keen to embark upon a career in the care sector, but having worked for Royal Mail for well over a decade, was unsure about how to make a start.
Following an initial interview with Amanda Thomas, Apprenticeship Development Officer, it was clear that Marcus had many transferable skills and that his personal values were comparable with those we look for within Care Plus Group employees.
Marcus went on to complete a 26 week voluntary placement as a Trainee Support Worker at the Curzon Centre, which he thoroughly enjoyed and which further embedded his desire to work within care. Marcus was delighted when he was recently offered the post of Bank Integrated Support Worker at The Beacon and can’t wait to get started.
Amanda Thomas, Apprenticeship Development Officer says, “It has been an absolute pleasure to support Marcus on his journey towards a new career. He has shown such motivation and commitment right from the start and he deserves the chance he is now getting to achieve his aspirations”.
