From Service Personnel to a Personnel Service

From Service Personnel to a Personnel Service

4,480 British Army personnel are being made redundant in the latest round of cuts as announced by the MoD last week. The news has come as a blow to many as the MoD attempts to shed 20,000 regular jobs by 2018.

The difficulties faced by military personnel returning from active service are well documented. Many find it hard to make the conversion to Civvy Street and dovetail back into a society that is rightly proud of the efforts they have made for Queen and country.

IT and Technology recruitment specialists, Eurotime Solutions, is proud to count amongst its ranks two former soldiers who served in Afghanistan.

Will Kellett served with the 5th Battalion, The Rifles. During a six month deployment in the Nahr-e-Saraj district, Will was based in a ground holding, frontline checkpoint. Kurt Fisher is an Army reservist who, as a communications specialist, provided tactical and strategic communications whilst on a seven month tour of Afghanistan.

Both are now integral members of the Eurotime Solutions team, but as Will explains, “the transition to civvy street was, for me, fairly hard, but made easier by working with people here that value what I have done.”

With service life being somewhat of an enigma for those who have no direct experience of life in the forces, Eurotime Solutions is confident that Will and Kurt will be ideally placed to assist ex-servicemen and women in securing civilian roles.

Will adds, “Having a foot in both camps, I can not only empathise with my former colleagues, but promote their transitional skills to our clients. Returning soldiers have a huge amount to offer, but often get overlooked because their CVs are basically a service record.”

Eurotime is immensely proud of both Will and Kurt and will be working very hard to maintain the excellent service it provides for its clients and candidates alike, helping returning soldiers find their feet again in Civvy street.
