Connor’s Story

Connor’s Story

Tash Bright No Comment

Connor had been doing nothing for a couple of months after completing his Games Development course at college. He visited the job club at Sheffield Futures, where he was signposted to Street League, a sport for employment charity. 

After an initial meeting, he signed up for the 10-week level 1 employment qualification. Connor said: “Street League massively helped me, they made me believe in myself and become much more confident and social.”

After a short placement at PlusNet, Connor now works on the delivery team at KnowHow. He says “it’s brilliant, I love it!”

We’re so pleased that Connor has found employment he enjoys. If you know someone who could benefit from a bit of help and signposting in the right direction, why not visit us at Sheffield Futures? We have drop-in job clubs 5 days a week, see our Careers Advice page for more information.
