My name is Adrian Robinson and I come from Jamaica. I want to tell you a little bit about my life story: I came to the UK in 1995, soon after I started work on a building site for 7 years. Then the recession hit the company so I became redundant, I had little jobs here and there but couldn’t get no job. I ended up on benefits, then was homeless. I went to the council for help and the council put me into a temporary accommodation – which was C&C. I lived in the accommodation for just over 2 months.
When I moved, I applied for a job as a cleaner with C&C, within a couple of days I had a phone call to say I got the job. The thing about the company that catch my eyes, they employ a variation of nationalities, so straight away that put me at ease. Everyone is so friendly. I do my job to the best of my ability and it was recognised by staff and management. I was made employee of the month 3 times and now I’ve been made employee of the year 2018-19.I did not expect that at all, it was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had in a job. I cannot thank staff and management enough, it will always be a great memory for me.
Thank you all again, Adrian
