#WithoutUs.... we wouldn't be able to help islanders back into the workplace

GUERNSEY EMPLOYMENT TRUST & GO ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE

SUCCESSFUL PLACEMENT INTO THE WORKPLACE Alex Cook, an autistic individual

who has been an employee on placement at GO from GET for 15 years as a Lead

Cashier in Retail, has now transitioned to full-time employment outside GO as a

delivery driver for a local sandwich bar. With the right support, Alex has proven he has

many transferrable skills. GO, Guernsey’s training, recycling and upcycling charity,

and GET, the Guernsey Employment Trust, who support disabled and neurodiverse

people to prepare for, find and maintain work in Guernsey, are pleased to announce

one of their placements has successfully entered the workplace. Finding a suitable job

can be challenging for neurodivergent individuals. People with autism, for instance,

may approach things differently than others, but they often possess remarkable

attention to detail and memory skills, which can contribute to improving accuracy and

correcting errors that would have gone unnoticed. Moreover, individuals with autism

tend to be highly devoted and loyal to their workplace. • “We at GO are delighted that

Alex is finding employment,” commented Chris Murphy, GO’s general manager. “GET

is proving very important in helping some of our trainees find work. We wish Alex well

and celebrate his success with him.” • “I never doubted Alex had the skills to find and

maintain paid employment. All he needed, and all anyone needs, is the opportunity.” –

Rick Robinson, GET • “I really enjoy my new driving and delivery role and am lucky to

work for such a supportive employer”, commented Alex, who has now successfully

found work. GO is thrilled Alex has secured his employment. We are confident that

Alex's hard work and dedication will continue to shine in his new role. All the best, Alex!
