Michael was referred to Stride Yorkshire by our incredible partners, Dice Enterprise.

Michael is an outstanding individual with a degree in performing arts, and a real passion for life. Michael unfortunately couldn’t find a paid job after 10 years of trying, this wasn’t through lack of effort, Michael just couldn’t find an understanding employer that celebrated his unique personality and supported his needs as an adult with Autism.

Michael met with Logan, and soon after was given an opportunity at The Hub, a speciality coffee shop & sandwich bar based in Auckley, Doncaster. This is an employer that Stride have a great relationship with and have employed multiple candidates that we have put forward.

Stride have since carefully planned out Michael’s support in work, and ensured that The Hub have all the information and appropriate training to get the best out of Michael. Michael loves it!

Michael has now been at The hub for nearly 2 years, and is ‘the face’ of the establishment. Michael works as a waiter and regular customers love his funny and witty personality, as well as his passion for film, which he proudly makes known.

Michael is now hoping to pursue a career in theatre, which Stride are working with him to achieve.
