Jade’s Success Story

Jade has been on a Supported Internship with Shrewsbury Colleges Group and Enable. She has been lucky enough to have three placements this year, giving her a good look into the world of work. 

Meg Hawkins Art

Jade started at Meg Hawkins Art Shop in the Darwin Centre. She supported with, merchandising, stock replenishment, customer service, online order packing and picking – EVERYTHING!  With Jade’s keen interest in Art this sat very comfortably with her and gave a good introduction to retail and working with the general public. Unfortunately, the retail branch has closed and moved to Ludlow which meant Enable were able to look for an alternative placement for Jade.


Jade’s next placement started at Withywood, part of Wrekin Housing Group, where she’s been supporting with administration, entertainment and general day to day running of events and facilities. The role has been varied and Jade has met so many people. The residents all know Jade by name now and the staff comment that Jade is really helpful and progressing really well.


Jade is also at a placement with Croud which is a digital agency with several offices around the world. Jade works in the office in Shrewsbury! Jade assists the Office Manager with administration, staff welfare and facilities management.

Comments from Jade’s placements

“Jade is competent, keen to learn, enthusiastic and has been indispensable over the last few weeks”

Ongoing Support

Jade has shown determination and positivity when faced with difficulties in finding a new suitable placement mid-way through the year – but ended up with another two placements! 

Jade has been supported at various times by an Enable Job Coach – in fact, Jade has met quite a few! Her Job Coaches have positively glowed about Jade and her kindness, positive attitude and abilities.                              

Everyone is wishing Jade well for her next steps into the world of paid employment or Apprenticeships.
