Intern to Employee: Niall Nails it!

Posted on the 16th April 2018

Niall was determined to secure himself a paid job when he joined our Supported Internship. All his hard work has paid off.  To his delight, Niall is now a Catering Assistant with Active Medlock. (Picture above: Niall, left, with Catering Manager Lee Whittaker.)

On his work placement Niall was supported by a Pure job coach while he learned the different aspects of his role. Cafe staff were also very supportive and pleased with his reliability and helpful outlook.

A little support is often all that is required for interns to achieve their potential.

When Niall was confident in his  role, he was asked to work two busy weekend shifts to see how he would respond to the increase in customers, noise and bustle within the cafe.

Job coaching and  support from cafe staff had given him a firm foundation in all aspects of the job and he took  everything in his stride. He worked so well that Manager Lee Whittaker offered him a paid position. Niall’s mum was delighted too!

Niall has come on leaps and bounds and his confidence has shot through the roof. His communication has improved tremendously since he started on the Internship too.

Niall is a lot happier. His aim was to get a paid job and now he has got there, I am really proud of him.

Now Niall works independently and is a valued member of the  catering team at the leisure centre’s Cafe Bistro. He achieved his goal through hard work and determination. Great work Niall!

Niall’s success now has its own Niall’s Story page on our website.

Our Tameside project is run in partnership with Tameside College  and Tameside Council and Active Tameside.  A great team.
