Shannon O’Callaghan

Name Shannon O’Callaghan
Company BAE Systems
 Last Known Job Role Analyst

Shannon joined BAE Systems on one of their very first Movement to Work cohorts following a period of unemployment and, in her own words, the programme changed her life and gave her a chance when she didn’t feel like she had anywhere else to turn.

After completing the 4 week Movement to Work programme run, and getting excellent feedback, Shannon decided that BAE Systems might be somewhere that she would like to work and could calve a career for herself.

Shannon applied for BAE’s extremely competitive Apprenticeship programme and utilising the skills, experience and self-confidence that she gained during her experience on Movement to Work, she excelled and was offered a place; this, however, is just the beginning of a story of fantastic success and sheer resilience that is to be admired.
