Chris Mason contacted Employment Solutions after learning there was a labourer’s job available at WFEL, a world-leading supplier of tactical military bridges based in Stockport. He had recently been made redundant and even though he was over-qualified for the role he was keen to work. He was initially placed at the company as a labourer sweeping floors. However, after a few short months, WFEL contacted Employment Solutions to ask if it would be possible to jointly put Chris through an apprenticeship. Employment Solutions would provide the finance and WFEL would support the day-release, module paperwork and all the onsite training required.
Employment Solutions was delighted as this would be a great opportunity for a hardworking man who took a chance on taking a job to succeed. Chris completed his apprenticeship in two years and then went on to complete his HND qualification in Mechanical Engineering.
Chris's story is proof that when clients form real partnerships with their recruitment agency, everyone benefits.
