A Bury College Supported Internship student has successfully gained full-time employment within the Catering team at Hoyle Nursery.

Jack Veichmanis has always dreamed of working in a kitchen, so his original placement was a perfect opportunity for him to shine. His hard work and dedication to the role saw him quickly become a hit with the staff there. 

The former Tottington High School pupil said: “Throughout my time, I’ve had excellent support from the Supported Internship team, they were brilliant in finding the right employer. Getting a job at Hoyle Nursery has built my confidence up. All the staff helped me to settle in and I love my job.”

Liz Greenhalgh, Jack’s Supported Internship Job Coach, said: “He was immediately very happy at the Nursery and is looking forward to his future with Bury Council and realising his aspiration of running his own kitchen in the future. Jack is a lovely young man, hardworking and focused on his goals. Jack is popular with everyone and will be missed by all of us on the Supported Internship programme.”

Rachel O’Neil, Headteacher at Hoyle Nursery, said: “Jack is always happy, smiling, friendly and willing to learn. Since starting, he has developed in confidence, follows the routines and is helpful with both staff and children.”
