Office & Finance Administrator
We are really happy to welcome Anthony to our Able Access UK family and give him his very first job! He came here on work experience a few years ago and then again more recently. Whilst here he was able to see what we did to give people their independence back and decided he wanted to make a difference not just get a job after he successfully completed his three A levels.
“I had a great time working at Able Access UK before due to the people that worked there and what they do to help their customers, they supported me throughout the whole experience. So, when the opportunity arose, I jumped at the offer to work here again… Officially. I can see myself working here for a long time to come… unless I win the lottery of course!”
