Leon started with Rocket at the beginning of the year, he had previously tried another college where he had completed qualifications in construction but Leon didn’t enjoy being at college and didn’t feel construction was right for him. He spoke to his local careers advisor who recommended he try another college to look at something different. After having a detailed interview about his ambitions and aspirations Leon decided to join us to complete a Warehousing qualification. Leon thought this would give him good options for employment given the growth in warehousing in his local home town.

Congratulations to Leon, who has completed his warehousing qualification with us this year and also completed his work experience at British Heart Foundation.

Working through his work experience gave Leon the confidence and work ethic to start thinking about his employment in this industry. He returned to college for some support with his job search, CV sessions and applications, thus leading to being offered a trial at a local recycling centre. Leon was successful in his trial and now has a full-time post working at the recycling centre.
