Eric becomes a valued Team member at Poundland
Eric joined EmployAbility after he finished a job he had been doing for four years. He was ready to find something new. He wanted to use his strong retail background and customer service skills to find a paid job out in the community.
Employment Support Specialists, Justin Morris and Rubens King supported Eric with job applications and interview support. After searching, applying and attending interviews, Eric secured a paid job at Poundland.
Eric was keen to get involved and was able to contribute independently from day one of his support. This highlighted how employable Eric is. He showed excellent communication and social skills whilst working alongside various Employment Support Specialists throughout his journey into finding a new job.
“I like working at Poundland. It is nice to be earning again.” Eric told us. He has now gone from working weekends to working most days of the week. His manager and the staff team he works with recognise how much of a hard worker he is. “Eric does a good job and cracks on with his tasks.” Poundland Store Manager. “Eric has taken this opportunity and made the most of it, I am sure he will have a fantastic career at Poundland.” Rubens King
