As a company committed to equality, diversity and inclusion Wrightbus established a partnership with NOW Group which resulted in a paid job for one participant and a work placement opportunity for another participant. The placement has helped him develop skills and confidence and increase his employability through completion of manual handling and health and safety awareness training and gaining knowledge of day-to-day work tasks.

Laura Adams P&D Development Business Partner stated “What the NOW Group are all about is fantastic because they offer such tailored support no matter how little or much is required, and Wrightbus are excited to keep working with them. We all just need an opportunity to show our capabilities and reach our potential.”
