Liam’s Success Story

A working interview gave Liam the chance to prove he was the right man for the job.

'I am happier when I am working' - Liam

Like many young people, Liam left college unsure of what his future held. He wanted a paid job but wasn’t confident he’d be able to get one. Securing a place on our Trafford Internship proved exactly the launch pad he needed.

His first work experience  placement was at Sky High Adventure, part of Active Tameside Medlock’s  exciting activity centre. Liam was determined to do his best in everything he was asked to do.

His duties included ensuring equipment was stored correctly and cleaning all areas. He quickly progressed, taking on additional roles including sanitising the soft play area.


Liam always enjoys being part of a team.

A  job vacancy arose  in the soft play area at Active Tameside’s new  venture, Total Adrenaline in Hattersley. Liam  was offered a working interview and over several weeks demonstrated to the management team just how suitable he was for the post.

To his delight, they offered him the job.

I can’t believe it because I got a paid job! I’m very happy and pleased for myself. I think I’ve done well.

I like to save up. I might buy a DVD in the meantime. I’d like to go away to Greece for a holiday. Now I can buy a ticket for a Manchester United match.


Liam is cheerful and positive in everything he does. He really deserves his success. In the course of his first term on the internship he also undertook travel training and can now travel independently too. Brilliant!

Watching Liam grow into his role at Total Adrenaline has been fantastic. He has really progressed and the job he is doing is vital to the facility. We are extremely pleased that Liam is now part of our organisation.
