Luke was made unemployed in July, due to his apprenticeship being completed. He was a Production Manufacture apprentice and worked on a fast paced production line making steel beams from billets, bloom and slabs. Since then he has applied for more than 100 jobs online, across the UK and even abroad.

Those who know him say Luke is an enthusiastic and a dedicated person who is willing to learn anything that is put in front of him to gain new skills to help him secure employment. He is an exceptional worker who is able to develop and motivate others as well as being able to work on his own initiative or as part of a team.

Leading up to Christmas Luke was offered a part time seasonal position in a popular shop in Darlington town centre and once the seasonal rush was over Luke was asked to stay on for an extra three months because of his hard work and dedication. He is currently learning new retails skills and is trained at cash handling and stock replenishment and customer service.

Luke has also done some voluntary work at Nature World in Teesside, and has registered as a volunteer with eVOLution Darlington to get more information on the National Citizen Service - the Government Initiative for supporting young people to work together.
