Stephen always had a keen interest in graphic design and web development, and wanted to pursue it as a career.
Stephen decided that going to college would be the best avenue for him but, after 2 years he decided to drop out and try and find a job.
He was unsure how to access a local job that he was interested in, so decided to approach Routes to Work for help. Soon after signing up a job with local firm Vision Design and Digital came up, and both Stephen and his caseworker realised it was perfect for him.
After starting his new job, Stephen said; “I did enjoy my time at college but I was eager to get out into the world of work and learn on the job. When I realised the job with Vision was only opened to Routes to Work clients it gave me some confidence – I knew they would do their best to find me the right job. My job as a Graphics Production Operator has been the best thing that has happened to me. Vision are a great company to work for and I have learned so many new things already.”

“Whilst doing a lot of the design side I tend to try and help with IT issues around the office and use some of the skills I picked up at school and at college.”
“I am really grateful for this opportunity and am grateful to Routes to Work for their support.”
