Three years ago, Anthony was working as a self-employed electrician when his father took unwell.
Suffering from anxiety and depression, Anthony decided to put his career on hold to look after his dad. After several heart attacks and approximately 3 years of care, Anthony found himself in a situation where he needed to get back to work but faced barriers preventing him from doing so.
“I just kept receiving knockbacks, and I wanted to do something a bit different” he explains
“As a fully qualified electrician, I knew I had the transferrable skills to offer a company, but I was struggling to find the right opportunity”
At this point, Anthony’s search for work led him to One Manchester, who were offering candidates help with their CVs as well as work placements and return to work schemes.
