S has been part of Talent Match London with since early October and has caring responsibilities for his parents. He has done a number of odd jobs but nothing long term and had been out of work for over a year before joining. S developed his own Talent Plan with the support of Talent Match staff and his peers, and identified his two main interests as fixing and maintaining bikes and computers. Meeting and supporting other young people who’d had similar experiences to him helped increase his confidence, and he explored the possibility of turning these pursuits into employment opportunities. He engaged with local employers, accessed a free training course and through doing this showed his potential to a local bike shop who offered him the chance to volunteer. S is now actively looking for work with the new skills gained and staff at his voluntary placement are involved in supporting his job search.
