Darren Robinson gains employment through Job Gym


Darren previously passed his Forklift Truck (FLT) license in 1997, and when in the job centre one day, expressed interest in renewing his FLT license. He discovered The Job Gym after finding parent company Mantra Learning in an internet search. 

He quickly discovered that renewing his FLT License would not be as simple as driving through a chicane like in the 90's, and knew that he had to sit various courses in order to get funding. A couple of these courses being Warehouse and Storage level 1 and 2 and the newly developed 'Getting Social Media Savvy' course.

Since coming to our Middleton site, Darren's confidence has improved dramatically. He stated that his "Confidence has been boosted in so many different ways." Darren had almost given up, but coming to Job Gym and sitting the courses gave him the assurance that he could be employed once again. 

"So many doors opened, the staff have been amazing ... I felt like part of a family here"

One of Darren's biggest fears was going for a job interview, but he was relieved to discover that Job Gym even provide job interview training and tips.   

"It's been a good experience and I'd just like to thank everyone at Mantra. Thank you for the support"

We would like to wish Darren the best of luck for the future in his full time role at Transbridge Freight.
