Employment support in action!

Eddie Dempsey

Eddie Dempsey – Security Guard at Dreamland 

Eddie, a 51 year old Orbit customer, has successfully secured full time employment at Dreamland in Margate thanks to the Orbit funded Thanet Step Up programme.

Following 13 years of unemployment, Eddie is working as a Security Guard at Dreamland and he is loving every minute of it!

He really wanted to complete the SIA (Security Industry Authority) training course but funding for the course was hard to come by, until he got in touch with Orbit and then Step Up. Eddie told us that without their help, he would not have secured his position and he is extremely thankful for the opportunity which has changed his life.

We wish Eddie the best of luck with his new job!
