After searching unsuccessfully for construction sector work following redundancy, 60-year-old North Lanarkshire resident - Robert started working with Routes to Work in 2017. When a relative recommended the service to him, Robert was already low in confidence, and was starting to struggle financially due to lack of employment.
One-to-one training and CV support from his local caseworker in Shotts helped lift his self-esteem enough to secure new job openings via agencies. Robert found, however, that this work was not sustainable or consistent enough – so with Routes to Work support he completed his forklift licence and CSCS card to allow him to search for a more appropriate permanent role.
It was Routes to Work’s partnership with North Lanarkshire headquartered construction company Morgan Sindall that was ultimately to result in successful employment for Robert. Morgan Sindall and its sub-contractors have been working alongside Routes to Work for several years and are committed to supporting its vision and values.
