A trio of unemployed youngsters are delighted to have full-time jobs with Thameslink after graduating from a programme run with The Prince’s Trust.

Lutonians Tom Fuller and Michael Suszek, both 21, and Becky Emery, 20, of Flitwick were part of a group of 11 who gained work experience and customer service training at various stations under Thameslink’s Get into Railways scheme.

Passenger service director Stuart Cheshire said: “We identified these three superstars who we’ve taken on full time because they fit in with the attitudes and behaviours that can really change our business.
“The moment I met them at our end-of-course event I said ‘We have to keep these people in our organisation.’”

Tom said: “Lots of people I know have got work through Thameslink’s Prince’s Trust programme and it’s changed their lives.”
Michael, who couldn’t find a job although he has a degree in psychology, added: “It gave me the opportunities I needed.”
