Josh Arnold, our Furniture and Fume cupboards Fitter, applied for a job with S+B at the age of 16 through a government initiative called Connexions which helped to get young people into work after leaving High School.
As part of the scheme, Josh had to work through a 6-month probationary period with little compensation and no guarantee of earning a full-time contract. Josh proved himself a popular employee very quickly with his determination to work hard. He worked on the shop floor doing manual labour and slowly learning all aspects of furniture manufacturing.
S+B were so impressed with Josh, we offered him a full-time contract, and the rest is history!
He has since completed an NVQ Level 2 in furniture installation, holds a skilled worker CSCS card and is now a fully-fledged laboratory installer.
Most impressively though, Josh has travelled the globe extensively over the past 11 years working for S+B to install furniture projects from prestigious International Schools in Kuala Lumpur, to gas pipeline projects in the Algerian desert.
We’re proud to have Josh as part of the S+B team and long may it continue!
