A construction apprentice who worked at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park through a local employment scheme has seen his hard work praised.
Musa Jallow, 35, was recognised for his commitment and effort on the project leading to significant progression in the work being carried out with civil engineering firm BAM Nuttall in Stratford.
Since completing the apprenticeship, Musa got himself a job working for Crossrail while continuing to concentrate on achieving an NVQ Certificate.
Musa first registered with Barking and Dagenham Council’s Job Shop in 2011 and was allocated an advisor who helped and supported him to find a position.
Throughout his journey he benefited from extra support such as handy advice on how to create a CV and prepare for an interview.
