I never thought that I would get a job but MWLFS helped me to start my career with an admin trainee-ship. Now, 9 years later, I have a job that I love, increased duties & responsibilities and loving what I do.
I have always been interested in working in a florist. The training and work experience I did paid off and I now have a great job where I get to do the thing that I love most. The best part of my week is going to work.
I am very grateful to the staff at MWLFS for helping me to find a job. Since I started work back in October I have felt more positive about myself and life in general. It feels good to know that I’m contributing to the community and it also feels good to have a little more money in my pocket. The training that was suggested help me to gain the confidence to know that I can do the job.
