David began the CWP programme at the beginning of March this year, and was successfully placed with Mossburn Community Farm near Lochmaben, where he quickly became an integral part of their team.
He initially lacked motivation and up to date work skills from being unemployed for 9 years and he felt he needed to make a positive change in his life.
After three months of intensive employability skills support from Joe and Carolann, he finally secured a full time and permanent contract of employment with a local food processing and packaging company in Annan, which began 29th June 2015.
Some quotes from his placement manager, Juanita Wilson, include:
“One hundred per cent reliable, hard worker”
“his help has been invaluable”
“Nobody deserves a job more than David, and although we are delighted he has found one, we will miss him.”
