Over the past year, we have helped 900 people with autism or a learning, physical or sensory disability to find work placements through our Surrey Choices EmployAbility service.
The success of the service was celebrated recently at our Making a Difference awards where we highlighted what a difference being within a work environment can make to our customers lives. However, it’s not just our customers who have seen the advantages – some of the biggest employers in the country have benefitted from adding hard working, enthusiastic and skilled individuals to their teams.
Tom was nominated because of the journey he has gone through to gain his role at Thorpe Park. Tom is so proud of his job and he talks about it all the time. Working in the site presentation team, Tome ensures the park is kept to high standard of cleanliness by emptying bins, collecting litter, cleaning toilets etc. The theme park have always supported Tom and were happy to give him this opportunity.
Thorpe Park offers some of the most extreme and exciting rides in Europe – with over 28 rides and attractions.
As part of Merlin Entertainments, they invest heavily both in their facilities and in people. That investment means there’s a wealth of career opportunities open to anyone and everyone with enterprise and ambition.
