The Roofing Yard is a local business which sells a wide range of roofing supplies to both trade and public. It is based at 1B Romford Road, Stafford, ST16 3DZ.
Mr John Jenkinson, Managing Director of the Roofing Yard, couldn’t have been more helpful. He was more than happy to provide a placement for Liam Bell; 22 years old from Stafford Team 11. Liam was your typical Team member; quiet, introverted and reserved. On my first placement visit, I could see that Liam was happy and interested in the work and wanted to do a great job. By the end of the two week placement, I was approached by Mr Jenkinson who asked if he could offer Liam a permanent position working for him at The Roofing Yard. This would be Liam’s first job and he was over the moon and accepted it. I was more than happy with the outcome. Mr Jenkinson said “It’s been a privilege to work with the Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service Prince’s Trust Team. I feel that it is important to give something back to the community and working with young people like this is a win-win. I will be taking more placements and can’t recommend it enough. I have offered anther placement to a young man from Stafford Team 12 and I’m sure that he will be a benefit to my business while he is here.”
Liam said “The team at The Roofing Yard had been welcoming and slowly taught me how to operate the relevant machinery and processes of the job. I would have never have been offered this position without the help of Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, The Prince’s Trust Team programme and The Roofing Yard for having patience with me”
