Azeb is a young man who was referred to the Capacity Building team by the CHC Housing department. He wanted to train as a mechanic, however there were no places available in any of the colleges approached.


On further discussion and meetings with him, as we constructed his vocational plan it become clearer that Azeb would just like to have a job but thought his lack of experience would hold him back. Based on this new identified goal his CHC vocational advisor put him forward for the Business in the Community “Ready for Work” programme in January 2010 . He was going to get some work experience with Royal Mail.


Three weeks later Royal Mail was so impressed with Azeb’s commitment and hard work that they offered him a three month temporary contract until the end of April 2010. After March 2011 you may see him putting letters through your post box as he’s still working for Royal Mail. He has reported coming to CHC was the best thing he ever did and having a job is like having a new lease of life.
