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.
