Adella Gibbs

Adella Gibbs, who has aspirations to become a lorry driver, was referred to TBG Learning Swindon to help her get back on the career ladder after two years without a job.

Through TBG Learning the 37-year-old underwent training with Talent Express Ltd to add to her skills set; working towards a warehouse administration qualification and forklift license course.

Adella impressed so much during her training with Talent Express that she was offered a job to stay on permanently and having gained her fork lift license, Adella, who previously worked on the night shift at ASDA, has now set her sights on completing a HGV driving course.

Adella said she found it frustrating being out of work and she wasn’t expecting a job as an outcome from the training at all;

“TBG Learning first put me in touch with Talent Express to get a few more qualifications under my belt.

“I got on really well with the team and ended up being offered a job as a centre co-ordinator, which I must admit, I wasn’t expecting at all.

“I’d been out of work for around two years and was really struggling to stand out from the crowd. I’d never been out of work before, and found it really frustrating.

“My adviser at TBG Learning knew my confidence had been knocked and was amazing with me. She knew Talent Express could help me and I was well suited to the courses they specialise in, and as it turned out I was even more suited to the company than we first thought!”

Adella, who has a 13-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son, has settled in quickly in her role at the company, which provides Warehouse, Construction and Professional Driving Training Courses.

“My instructor Dave Owen and warehouse supervisor Chris Goodman have been brilliant with me, and I’ve been made to feel so welcome by everyone here.

“There’s a really great atmosphere at work and I really couldn’t be happier.”

Shirley Miller, personal advisor at TBG Learning Swindon said she knew it wouldn’t take long at all for Adella to get a job after being referred to the Work Programme.

“Adella is really vibrant and it was obvious she has a great work ethic and was keen to get a new job.

“We’re delighted Adella impressed so much at Talent Express to be offered a job, and has settled in well in her job and with the team. We wish her all the best for the future.”
