Daniel has recently celebrated his 3rd year of working for Metro Rod, he joined us in 2015 on a Welsh Government funded initiative called ‘Jobs Growth Wales’. Jobs Growth Wales allows employers to offer a part-funded six-month opportunity to young people and create new roles within their organisation. Part-funded by the European Social Fund, participants are paid a wage and benefit from gaining vital work experience and developing on-the-job skills; while also supporting Welsh businesses to grow.

Daniel joined us to support our marketing and administrative duties, he immediately made an impact and was quick to learn all aspects of the business, in particular, the processing of camera survey reports and the monitoring and allocation of work to our engineers. Daniel was given all of the support required to prosper in the job role he had been given, he benefited from continuous mentoring and professional development opportunities. These opportunities included; a level 2 qualification in customer service, and the experience of attending meetings with various clients.

After Daniel’s 6 month part-funded opportunity came to an end he had proved himself to be an indispensable member of the Metro Rod team, and had earned himself a permanent contract of employment. Since then Daniel has developed his skills and experiences even further, he now has sole responsibility for many of our large commercial clients, liaising with them on a daily basis to ensure they are receiving the best possible customer service.

Being part of the Metro Rod team has given Daniel the opportunity to develop his skills in an environment where we all share the same strong work ethic. We pride ourselves on the service we provide and always aim to give our customers and clients the best possible experience when dealing with Metro Rod.
