We are sharing a second video today as part of the national DYW Scotland campaign, A Job for Everybody.
This social media campaign - which runs from Monday 11-Friday 15 November - has been set up to show the barriers that some people can face when it comes to getting a job. These include those relating to disability, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion.
We are sharing the stories of local people who have found employment with the support of the Employment Support Team at Orkney Island's Council.
This second video tells Eric's story. Eric secured a job at Skate Rumple Farm in Dearness, where he became a valued member of the team. In this film, we hear from his employers Mandy and Nick who speak about the skills and abilities Eric has brought to his role.
Eric has been supported by Employment Co-ordinators from the All Age Disability Team, who provide support to people with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders and some people who struggle to understand information, learn skills and cope independently. They work with individuals to develop skills and confidence, help them find a job that matches their skills and provide on the job support.
