Meet Kevin

Kevin staff photoHi, my name is Kevin and I am a training assistant. I have been employed here full time for nearly 2 years, before that I volunteered one day a week for 12 months.

I have been married for over 30 years and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. I left school at 17 and until 3 years ago worked for myself as a Market Trader, operator and wholesaler, a career I enjoyed immensely.

A few years ago I decided I wanted to change from my chosen career and was lucky enough to be involved with Working World and started to volunteer. This led to full time employment and I have to say it has changed my life. It is the most mentally tiring and yet most wonderful and satisfying job I've ever done and no day is ever the same..

"Working World is like a family to me."
