Gregory

Gregory, 45 and struggling with mental health challenges came to see us after being out of work for more than one year. His NLSS counsellor arranged for him to attend a hiring fair with a security company, where he decided he wanted to take the training course to become a security guard. Gregory was able to pay for the training using his own money but NLSS found client incentive dollars available through Employment Ontario to pay for his security exam and license. Upon successfully passing the exam and receiving his license, Gregory received assistance from our job development team to secure an interview with the security company. He was subsequently hired and is doing incredibly well in his new role.
