Finley loves all things catering but he also loves dancing (with the Entrust staff and customers) and art. He joined us to put into practice the skills he’s learnt at college and to help him become work ready.
This involves, not just the practical elements of the job but also arriving on time, working with peers, stamina, motivation, time keeping and using initiative.
Getting to know Finley has been a pleasure and learning more about his personal skills helped shape the direction of his job search. Finley loves older people and they love him, he has the most infectious smile and is such a lot of fun.
He attended some of our enrichment activities focussed on growing in confidence and he was a natural at drama. So it made perfect sense when the idea of entertaining and talking to older people came up.
Finley is Assisting the Entertainment Coordinator at a care home, with the support of one of our Entrust Partners. It’s safe to say, he is a hit with the residents. This first job is the starting point to gaining more experience and confidence in the workplace, whilst he works his way towards a role in catering.
“I can not praise the Entrust team who work with the trainees highly enough. I have seen Finley grow leaps and bounds in confidence. The staff make working there fun and are understanding and supportive. Entrust has helped Finley to secure a role as Assistant to the Events Coordinator in a care home. They helped Finley write a CV and accompanied him to the care home for his interview where they sensitively steered questions to enable him to shine.
Thank you SO much.”
