I have been working for Jobforce Wales for just over 8 years. I have worked on the Smart Project for 7 years and i have been managing the project since January 2010. Before starting with Jobforce I worked in the catering and retail sector for 7 years after leaving school. I find my job a challenge and a pleasure and I thoroughly enjoy coming to work every day.
