Robert Kirkwood and Marzena Dobrzynska
Robert Kirkwood was originally a client on our DWP programme in Fife. After successfully finding employment earlier in the year, it was October 2015 that Robert was back in touch asking for our support to find staff for his new business venture – “The Corner Shop” in Crossgates.
Marzena Dobrzynska was a Stage 4 Employability Fund client who had recently been made redundant from her long term employer. When the vacancy with Robert arose, Marzena was very keen to be considered for the opportunity. After a successful interview Marzena was delighted to be offered the job.
Robert and Marzena are delighted with the growing success of the shop.
