Tony, a former soldier was helped back into work by The Poppy Factory after a heart transplant. Tony who served in the Gloucestershire Regiment for five years, sought help from The Poppy Factory following the life-saving surgery in 2016. After being unemployed for 12 years he is now enjoying a new career at regional property management firm Spectrum Property Care.
“I knew I wanted to work again after my heart transplant and four days after my operation I was surfing social media when The Poppy Factory came up, so I made contact.
“My employability consultant, Farrah, helped me with my confidence, skills, job searching and most importantly my CV, and now I’m back at work. I may have lost 12 years of my life, but now I’m mended and taking each day at a time, and I feel on top of the world.”
