Before starting her employment, Toni had a place on the council’s Project Ability scheme which offers a paid placement and training opportunities for young people with varying abilities.

Commenting on her new role, Toni (24) said: “I would not be where I am today without Project Ability and I’m delighted to be a member of the team at Beltac. Project Ability is one of the best decisions I have made. It’s not only helped me get into the workplace but has given me the opportunity to boost my confidence and let people see my capabilities.”

Prior to Covid-19, Jamie Mowat, Construction Director for Beltac said: “As a contractor working on behalf of the council, we were given the opportunity to attend a Disability Confident event.

"We found this really beneficial and were fully onboard.

"After a successful interview, Toni took up her post in June and has settled in great. At this early stage we can see that she’ll be a valuable member of our team.”
