Ben completed a Preparation for Work Programme with Phoenix Training Services in January 2014. Ben a very shy person, struggled with social interaction and therefore struggled with skills needed to enable him to sit in an interview situation. Phoenix Training used our contacts with a local firm, RH Nuttall Ltd to arrange a day’s work trial instead of an interview.
The day’s work trial proved successful as Ben worked hard all day and impressed the employer enough for them to offer him a fully paid 3 week trial during May 2014.
Ben is now looking forward to signing a full time contract.
The Director of RH Nuttall Ltd feels that if Ben had gone through the normal route of an interview, he would not be working there now. However from a business point a view, by completing the work trial he has proven he has the abilities required. He never moves from his station and you will not go onto the shop floor to find him chatting away. They plan to use Ben’s time with the company to build his confidence. As a well-established firm they are always seeking to invest in their future which includes their staff.
