Rodney is 62 years old, and has worked the last 47 years of his life in the Manufacturing Industry. 30 years of that work tenure was for the same company in Ontario, until the company closed its doors 2002. Since losing his full time permanent position job 17 years ago, Rodney has been working short term contract jobs with temp agencies in the Brantford area.
Rodney came to the Targeted Initiative for Older Worker program at CES in 2015, because he was laid off and could no longer secure temp positions as his certificates for Forklift, Reach Truck and manufacturing industry specific tickets had expired. TIOW paid for Rodney to renew his tickets and he is now working full time for a local company.
Congratulations Rodney. Your hard work has paid off.
