Thanks to a successful partnership with the South West Regional Assessment Centre (SWRAC) our customers can come and find out what it’s like to work with us by taking part in our work placement scheme.
Since April 2016, we’ve provided work placements for eight young people; helping them develop a range of useful skills, from fencing and basic repairs to working with others and time management.
Having recently completed his four-week placement with Aster’s response team, Joshua Copp said: “Due to a recent move I was out of work and looking to get my foot back in the door. As soon as I heard about the scheme I knew it was something I would benefit from doing and I’m so glad I did.
“It’s helped me in more ways than one; I learnt something new every day and have expanded on the skills and knowledge I had from previous roles. It’s also made me realise this is definitely the industry I want to go in to and I’d be happy to work for an organisation like Aster going forward.”
