Michael Brooks, 56, from Grantham.
He has an NVQ in accounting and is experienced in data entry. He was made redundant seven years ago and has been looking for work ever since. During that time Michael has completed a variety of training in everything from business administration to health and hygiene. He also completed a two year secretarial course. He is a regular volunteer at St Wulfram’s Church coffee shop and Grantham Senior Citizens’ Club.
Michael’s confidence has been knocked by being unemployed but he has completed courses to help him. He does not drive but will travel on public transport.
