I started at Space as a CJS trainee doing admin work on a temporary basis, which was an amazing experience. It led to me applying for a permanent job here where I have learned loads of new skills. I’ve also received a lot of support to start a college course, which I love! As a young single mum, it’s been really great to get the support I needed to find a job that fits in with my son.
