JOHN KING, 32, from Llanelli, was a self-employed carpenter for a number of years. In 2013, John made the hard decision to look for work as the stress of being self-employed as an independent contractor became too difficult. During 2013, John was referred to South West Workways by Llanelli Jobcentre Plus. He was keen to try anything and was open to suggestions. He worked closely with his mentor, Jake, and was put forward to gain his CSCS card, which would open up lots of construction opportunities.
