Going up – Placement prospects reach new heights

Supporting Futures

Sheridan Lifts are excited to deliver the latest success in Supporting Futures, our partnership with One Manchester’s One Future Service.

One Manchester’s initiative is to deliver ‘employment help’ to anybody needing a boost into work. Work placements, volunteer opportunities, training courses and many more are on offer – free of charge – supporting the local community into work.

Tony Sheridan, Managing Director of Sheridan Lifts, said “Sheridan’s are proud to step in and support by offering work placements across the board in our company.”

Providing a placement

The brand new initiative, which has seen through two placements so far, has achieved a 100% full-time employment rate! Our candidates have given the eight-week placement their all – overcoming adversities and celebrating their successes!

Our latest placement candidate, Ed, triumphed an eight-week part-time placement in our service department at our Manchester HQ.

Ed, who was offered the job even before his placement was up, said:

A work placement with Sheridan’s has really done me a world of good. With being a year out of work it has boosted my self-confidence, motivation and provided me with some new on site skills.

It has been so good to get back into working in a professional busy team once more and finishing each day feeling like I have done a good positive days’ work. I have never before tackled filing, a franking machine, data sorting on spreadsheets or scheduling engineer’s appointments but discovered that I can do these tasks.

I also discovered that I have better time management and prioritising skills than I thought I had. I would recommend work placements to anyone and thank Sheridan’s for putting back the “can do” into each day!

Our Key Accounts Manager said “Ed’s work ethic and performances have been spectacular and we cannot wait to have him working with us full time from the 1st March.
