Joseph Nabney (20) now has a permanent job at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital thanks to a government scheme which helps under 25s back into work.
Joseph working with the hospital’s logistics team in December as part of the KickStart scheme, which offers placements to young adults on universal credit, allowing them to develop their skills and help them back into employment.
In September last year, hospital logistics manager Steve Curtis visited Bournemouth Job Centre to see how the trust could get involved and was able to offer Joseph a placement. Six months down the line, Joseph has now been offered a full-time position.
Steve said: “Since Joseph first started his placement, he has excelled. Joseph is extremely hard working and very quick to learn new skills.”
Joseph is based in the linen room at RBH and his duties include included ordering, printing, picking and packing as well as delivering linen to the different wards and departments.
Joseph said: “I really enjoy my role, it’s so interesting learning about the hospital and my colleagues are all very friendly. It’s great to be working somewhere that looks after their staff so well. Steve has been an amazing mentor to me.”
Steve added: “I would like to congratulate Joseph on his success and personally thank all the staff behind the scenes who helped with KickStart. It is fantastic we are able to offer Joseph a chance at full time employment with us.”
