Student Success – Supported Internship Secured

Over lockdown, Nuneaton student Oliver K told staff his dream of working with watches. Determined to make it a reality, staff set out looking for career opportunities.

In September 2021, Oliver went to an interview at Timpson in Nuneaton town centre where he was accepted for a Supported Internship position. During his internship, Oliver will be learning how to fix watches, repair shoes, and engrave & cut keys.

Speaking about the interview, Oliver said: “I was very enthusiastic about the interview and I am looking forward to learning and building on my skills”.

By the end of his first work day the following week, Oliver had already managed to fix a shoe with help from his manager Dave, served his first customer and took orders for dry cleaning services.

After his first day, Oliver said: “I enjoyed my first day working, I have gained some great skills and experience already”.

We are looking forward to seeing Oliver progress during his internship in a sector he wants to future employment in. We are really proud of Oliver’s professional approach and his commitment to achieving his career goals.

Thank you to Dave and the team at Timpson for providing this opportunity and making Oliver’s career dream a reality.
