The Council has helped Andrew take on the career he wants in Adult Social Care and begin an apprenticeship to become a qualified Social Worker.
After joining the Council at the age of 17 and carrying out roles in data protection and customer relations, he joined the Council’s Adult Social Care team, finding something he loves.
Andrew is now being supported by the Council to complete his apprenticeship, learning on the job while he studies at university.
On his role at the Council, Andrew said: “It involves going to see people in the community and assessing them to see what support they require.
“We also advocate for people and support them to become as independent as they can.
“I think the best thing about my role is meeting people in the community and some amazing professionals from the NHS and those working at care homes.
“Just being able to network and work towards the same goals of supporting people in the community is very rewarding.
“If you’ve got a passion for helping people, it’d definitely a role for you.”
