Originally from Iran, Amir came to the UK to build a better life for his family and find a fulfilling career. He initially volunteered in a building maintenance role to improve his English and really liked the work. Amir was referred to The Building Block in Sheffield for his CSCS training and to learn general construction skills, which would better his chances of finding a job.
Amir really enjoyed the variety of training he received on the course, and in particular the onsite training element. After the course, Amir decided to focus on plumbing as his chosen trade. He now works as a Plumber’s Mate for a local Sheffield employer and really appreciates the opportunities this role and the industry as a whole has given him.
