CEIS Ayrshire

Craig Secured a Job as a Fitters Mate at SIGMA

Meeting Craig at Saltcoats Job Centre.

I met Craig in the Saltcoats Job Centre at the start of September after his work coach brought him down to have a chat with me about the services that CEIS Ayrshire offered.
Craig decided he would like to register with us, and I completed the registration paperwork there and then. During this I found out that Craig had finished a job at Collins Aerospace which was a Kickstart position that lasted 6 months. He was keen to continue in a practical hands-on environment and we discussed the option of Construction.

Applying for Jobs

Craig attended his appointments where I made a new CV for him, and we started job searching. I supported Craig with an application for Scottish Power for a Trainee position, but Craig was unsuccessful. We continued to look for work that Craig could apply for. Our Business Services team sent an email with businesses who were looking for a Joiners Mate and a Fitters Mate.
Craig was keen to have his CV sent across for both jobs to allow him to keep his options open. The next day Craig had received a call from SIGMA about the Fitters Mate position and was asked to go for an interview.
After Craig attended his interview, he was offered the job there and then and asked if he could start the following Monday. He is really excited to be starting this new job and a full-time position.
