Double Success at The Stormont Hotel!

07 October 2016

Congratulations to Craig McConnell and John Kinsella, who after two years on the Workable NI Programme at The Stormont Hotel have now progressed to Open Employment.

Both Commis Chefs started at The Stormont Hotel on work placements through the Training For Success programme under the supervision of Head Chef Jay Eisenstadt. With his training and mentoring they both moved into paid employment through Disability Action's Workable NI Programme.

Head Chef Jay Eisenstadt "It has been a pleasure work with both lads from the outset and see their progress over the two years, and I'm looking forward to their continuing journey"

Craig McConnell " Workable supported me to get my Benefits sorted out and the courses they provided really helped me to build my confidence in the job"

John Kinsella " Workable helped me at times to focus on things I needed to work on in my job, and they were able to fund my Confectionery and  Patisserie Course at BMC, which I am proud to say I passed"

At the end of their two years they have now progressed from the Workable Programme and have become valued members of the Stormont Chef Team and we wish them both success with their future careers.

Their wonderful catering skills can be sampled at the very luxurious Stormont Hotel!
