A year ago Adam felt frustrated about his future, he’d been out of work for 7 months. His situation turned around quickly after he was introduced to Acorn via Ely’s community hub, Dusty Forge.

Adam had an NVQ Level 2 in Bricklaying and was keen to get back into the industry, despite having been out of construction for a long period of time.

‘‘Neither Acorn or Willmott held it against me, the fact I hadn’t worked on a site for about four years. They could see I wanted the opportunity. After years in various retail jobs and a long spell of unemployment, I was happy to work as a labourer and get myself back onto a site. They sorted my CSC card and got me a job within a week!

I’ve been on the site for almost a year now, and each day is different. I can’t imagine being out of work again. It’s a good feeling having a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
