Saabir’s story

Saabir Aydarus is on a catering assistant placement at Charing Cross Hospital in London. Saabir has a learning disability and was referred to Sodexo through the DFN Project Search programme.

I work in the canteen at the hospital where I help cook the breakfast, bring out the lunch, and serve people,” says Saabir.

“I used to be quite shy and I’d get very nervous around people. I would struggle to make eye contact. But now, I enjoy serving people the most.

I have a job coach and I get lots of support from the rest of the team. I’ve also learned about food hygiene, cleaning and customer service. The job with Sodexo has given me so much more confidence, and I love working
in a hospital. This experience has been one of the best things to happen to me.”
