Dedication pays off as young Camerons find work
Two determined Renfrewshire men have secured employment with a social enterprise after impressing the team with their dedication.
Young Enterprise Scotland’s YES Works – an award- winning social enterprise which provides landscaping gardening services for local authorities, housing associations, businesses and private homes – has recruited Cameron Laidlaw and Cameron Smith as YES Works assistants.
In the Community Job Scotlandfunded posts, the men will assist the YES Works team in delivering gardening work across the west of Scotland.
Cameron Laidlaw, 21, from Barrhead, progressed through the YES Pathways Programme before gaining the permanent position at YES Works’ headquarters at Rouken Glen.
And Cameron Smith, 18, from Erskine, was offered the role when his six-month YES secondment from Linstone Housing Association came to an end.
YES Works manager Colin Higgins said: “We are very pleased to welcome both Camerons to our small but very successful team here at YES Works.
“These appointments demonstrate the effectiveness of our training and secondment initiatives as both recruits have secured the jobs after spending time with our team.
“They’re both very dedicated young lads and I am sure they will be a fantastic addition to the team.
We all wish them the best of luck in their new roles.”
YES Works aims to provide sustainable employment opportunities and training for young people from less advantaged backgrounds.
