Persistence paid off for Level 2 carpentry and joinery student Ollie Jashanica who landed himself a paid job after impressing on work experience.
The first year student completed a successful placement with Higgins and, keen to show his enthusiasm for the role, he wrote to the company asking to be considered for any future opportunities. Shortly after, he received a phone call from the director offering him a job!
Ollie said: “I was over the moon. I really enjoyed my time at Higgins and now I’m going to be working there full time in the holidays and part time during term time. It’s a great opportunity to earn some money and put what I’m learning at college into practice in the workplace. I’m really enjoying my course and I’d like to progress onto an apprenticeship.”
