MtW Youth Ambassador Samuel Meakings, now a Youth Employability Coach at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). After years of struggling to find permanent work, he has been helping young people into jobs throughout the pandemic: “I have come full circle. I have suffered the stress and lack of confidence that comes with a long path to the world of work, but starting with the Movement to Work programme, I have spent the last few years building a career I love. Now I am now a Youth Employability Coach. The work is so rewarding, but I know first-hand that our young people need willing employers more than ever.”
