Our latest success story at Volition is Andrew who gained employment with NCP car parks whilst on the course. When Andy joined Volition group 2 he had been unemployed for 6 months and was looking for a change in career after being a labourer and charge hand for many years. Andrew took every opportunity he came across whilst on the programme and tried his hand at bee keeping with our own Adrian Rhodes bee keeper. Upon being interviewed for a role as an attendant Andrew was also volunteering at the Cenotaph which he still commits to date. His new manager Mark has sung Andrew’s praises and has said Andrew has a bright future at NCP.
