BBO Mile Participant Begins New Career Journey
We had some very exciting news from the BBO project as one of our Mile Participants, Alex, starts her journey as an HGV driver.
Our Mile Mentor Mike has been supporting his Participant Alex in career change and job searching. Alex would like to be an HGV driver and will need to complete the relevant training for Class 2. To support Alex in her knowledge and understanding of being a lady HGV driver we were able to gain the support of a local haulage company, Gregory and Davis Transport Ltd and their lady Class 1 driver Sharni. Sharni spent 3 hours with Alex explaining what was involved and also took her to the haulage yard to see all the different size vehicles. Gregory & Davis also made it possible for Sharni to take Alex out in her 7.5 tonne rig. Alex is very excited to be starting her training in May this year and has already begun job searching and looking at potential employers.
A big Thank You to Sharni and Gregory and Davies Transport Ltd. This opportunity was made possible by the funding provided by ESF and the Community Fund.
