Skye Hughes, a young individual with autism, joined Alpha Solway in January 2022 as part of our partnership with The Usual Place, a cafe providing opportunities for young people with additional support needs, South of Scotland Enterprise and Dumfries and Galloway Council.
From a work placement to a permanent member of the team, Skye has flourished within her role of production operator at our Dumfries factory.
With aspirations to one day become a team leader and supported by professionals across the business Skye has already begun to enhance her skills and turn her hands to different forms of engineering in and around the factory.
A spokesman from Alpha Solway, part of Globus Group, said: “Alpha Solway is committed to promoting inclusion and opportunities for all. We pride ourselves on having a diverse workforce and, as the region’s largest private sector employer with over 30 years heritage, Alpha Solway’s people is at the heart of everything we do.”
