“I’ve been in a wheelchair all my life because of a birth defect and, to be honest, it’s been a struggle. No company has ever been able to look past my disability. Coming to work at CCEP has completely changed my life.
When I first heard about the job at CCEP, I immediately jumped on it, not mentioning my disability. I injured my leg quite badly on the morning of my interview, but decided to keep my appointment first, before going to hospital. That’s how much I wanted the job.
My interviewers were a little caught off guard initially, but quickly looked passed my disability. They saw me as an actual human being, and offered me my first full-time job ever. They did everything they could to make me feel comfortable, including meeting with every single store on my patch to be sure I could do the job properly, and training me to do my work from a wheelchair because it’s quite a physical role.
I still struggle from time to time with accessing stock, but the CCEP team is always happy to help me out – they’ve been amazing. The managers I’ve reported to so far have just been incredible at looking at situations from my perspective. Honestly, they’ve been a godsend. I was in a dark place in my life before I started working at CCEP, but since then everything changed – everything has fallen into place and I’ve never been happier. I’m realistic about what kind of role would suit me, but I see a bright future ahead of me. One day I might even work at the CCEP head office.”
