Good news for BBO Bridges client


Cornel was born in Kingston, Jamaica in an area with a great deal of poverty. In his teens Cornel decided to leave Jamaica and the opportunity came along to move to London. He still regards this as one of the best things to have happened in his life. It was a difficult transition at times because of the culture shock but he found a job, met a girl and raised a family.

Cornel worked as a goods in transit driver for security companies – an extremely responsible job. However, following the break-up of his marriage Cornel was forced to take on full care of his two sons, and the family found themselves relocated to the West Midlands. Because of this move he became unemployed, a situation that continued for two years and Cornel found himself unable to renew his SIA badges.

He kept a positive, upbeat attitude, wanting to do everything that he could to improve his chances of employment. With support from BBO BRIDGES Cornel developed his employability skills, gained an ICT qualification and regained his SIA badges. Recently he successfully interviewed with Spears Worldwide Security and is now working once more. Cornel is over the moon and very grateful for all the help and support he has received through the BBO BRIDGES programme.
