The man who was rejected for thousands of jobs says, "I'm 25 stone, but I'm not lazy."

A 25-man man claims to have been turned down for "thousands of jobs" because employers assume he's lazy due to his weight.

Jack Smith said he had been trying to find a job for two years and applied for "everything and everything," but was always beaten back.

Jack, 25, who said he had always struggled with his weight, claims employers would take a look at his size and accept him lazy.

However, after securing a job, Jack said that he now wants to send a warm message to the bosses so as not to judge a book by his cover.

Jack Smith claims to have been rejected for "overweight" because of "thousands" of jobs

Jack of Walton said, "Do not assume that a job seeker who happens to be a plus size has a lazy attitude to work.

"Look at what people have done, what their achievements are and not what they look like.

"Someone of my size can be one of the best workers you have.

"I've never missed a working day, I've never had a sick day and I'm always on time.

"Even if I'm not feeling well, I would be there.

"You could have someone who is thin and constantly ill, size does not matter."

Jack Smith has a strong message for employers after he claims he was rejected for thousands of jobs because of his weight

They will get it because they are thinner than me

Jack, who calls himself "generous and generous," said employers would not tell him that his weight was the reason he was turned down, but "he just knew".

He added, "Within five minutes of the interview, I knew I would not get the job, no matter how hard I tried or what I saw in my resume.

"You did not have to say that it was because of my weight, but I would just get that feeling.

"You could say that they took a guess from me because I'm a big guy and lazy.

"I would see other people going on the job and waiting to be seen and thinking" they will get it because they are thinner than me ".

Jack added, "It would make me sad and I got depressed.

"I was looking for a job but wanted to work.

"Friends would ask me if I wanted to go out, but I could not afford it, and often I just sat there alone feeling alone."

Desperate that he would never find a job, Jack was referred by his DWP consultant at Jobcentre Plus to Work and Health North West.

He was then referred to Ingeus – a service that ensures that people have the skills, support and behavior to find jobs, gain independence and become productive employees.

Jack previously worked as a security guard at festivals and said his size in this role was an asset.

However, he decided not to renew his license because he wanted to find a job in the hotel industry.

While receiving help through the Ingeus program, Jack found the courage to apply for another job at easyHotel in Liverpool.

And finally, after years of trying, he was offered the role of a receptionist, which he has now had for a year.

I got my mojo back

He said, "It was a group interview and I was the only guy there.

"I remember sitting down first when I lost much faith after all the rejections, but then, when I talked to the manager, it just felt like

different, and I came out of the idea that maybe I got this job, and if I did not know, I knew that I had done a good job.

"I enjoy my job and feel so much better in myself.

"I am so happy that I did not sit at home looking for a job.

"I can go out with friends now because I have the money.

"I have my mojo back."

Jack, who is dyslexic, said Ingeus had helped with his confidence and his English and math qualifications.

He has also begun a health course for weight loss and looks to the future with the goal to take a leadership role.

Jack added, "I would tell other people in my position not to give up.

"I want to use my story to make those employers who have the interviewee's body shape influence their decision making.

"A person's height does not automatically mean inactivity – it's a positive attitude to work that counts."
