LONG-TERM positions are exactly what one of our experienced jobseekers is looking for having taken on several temporary contracts.

Kevin Watson has found himself out of work since August after completing an eight month contract at Doncaster’s Amazon where he was an order picker in what he describes as a “fast-paced environment”.

The 50-year-old is keen to get back into employment and set the right example to his three daughters and son but has yet to find the right opportunity to fit his array of skills.

Mr Watson, of West End Avenue in Bentley, said: “I have been looking but there doesn’t seem to be much going at the moment. It’s a bit of a difficult time jobs-wise.

“I have a lot of experience in factory work so I am looking at those types of roles to suit my skills.

“I do want to set the right example to my children. I just want to get back into work again. I don’t like being unemployed.”

Following his latest contract with Amazon, it is the second time Mr Watson has been employed at the site in Balby Carr Bank, having worked there between September and December in 2010 as an order picker.

The father-of-four was previously a forklift truck and machine operator at Doncaster Cables where he had a number of responsibilities including checking the quality of products before they were dispatched.

He has also been a forklift truck driver for another warehouse between 2001 and 2005 as well as an order picker from 1998 and 2000 dispatching goods to hardware and DIY stores across the UK.

Mr Watson said that he offers “hard work and commitment to any employer in return for the chance of employment” and is an “effective communicator”.
