Jak Barton joins the Team

Jak Barton & Darran Smith from Purple Rhino pressure washing services

27th April 2015 General

One year ago Jak came to visit Purple Rhino offices to ask for a job. We couldn’t employ him at that time, not because of his disability but because our van insurances cover from 25 years old and Jak was too young.

He came again one month ago to visit us and said: ‘Look, I’ve got my own van, can I have a job?’ Darran Simth, Purple Rhino’s Manager, didn’t hesitate about that. Jak’s motivation for work impressed him and here he is now, joining the Purple Rhino’s team.

Jak Barton was born deaf and he has got difficulties on speech, but he has shown everybody there is no barriers if you don’t create them. Jak’s determination has given all of us a lesson. There is no place for negative thoughts. If you really want something, believe you can do it and you will.
