Some say second chances don’t happen often but​asecond chance was all Shane Thompsonneeded to get his life back on track.

Shane saidhe thought no employer on earth would give him a shot because of his previous criminal history, but he’s now turned over a new leaf thanks to traffic management company SJ Roadworks.

“I’ve been in jail three times because of drugs. With my history it was hard for employers to give me a chance,” he said.

“The second time I got out of jail I couldn’t get a job, so I fell back into the old drugs and went straight back in for two years.You feel like you’re not worthy and a bit useless.”

Shane found work with the help of local employment provider MAX Employment, and said his job has helped him turn his life around in more ways than one.

“I just needed to get my self-esteem up and feel better about myself. I was 230 kilos when I was in jail, and I’ve already lost 50 kilos. I also paid back the money I owed my parents thanks to getting back into work.

“I’m lucky I have my parents around, they’ve stuck by me through the bad times. And MAX was great for me as well, they helped me with my cover letter and resume, and paid for my Traffic Management course to help me get this job.”

With his past well and truly behind him, Shane said he’s happy to have discovered healthy ways to manage his stresses, and encourages employers to look beyond someone’s criminal history.

“The biggest reason for using drugs was because I couldn’t cope with the way I felt. Now I’ve learned to go talk to people,” Shane said.

“I’m three and a half years clean now.”
