Case Study: Former Remploy Factory Employee

Nigel Samuel, who has a hearing impairment, is enjoying his new career as a production technician at Fashion Enter, having completed a comprehensive retraining programme.


The 51-year-old from Hackney worked for 17 years as an operative at Remploy’s Haringey factory and admitted to feeling sad when it closed.
But his future is now looking brighter than ever. “I enjoyed the training I received and going back to the place where I worked for so long to do a new job with new colleagues - and some familiar faces - has been a fantastic experience,” he said.
Eni-Ola Oluwatuminu, Nigel’s trainer at Fashion Enter, added: “Initially, I was concerned about his lack of experience but watching Nigel learn and gain confidence has been very rewarding for me.” This is an online publication. Contact us for more information.
