ANDY’S STORY

After serving in the  Royal Navy for 13 years and reaching the rank of Leading Hand, Andy left the Armed Forces in 2014. He found the transition from military to civilian life difficult and although he found work, found it hard to sustain a position for a long time. He’d also had trouble at interviews, finding it hard to translate his military skills to civilian jobs and being easily able to discuss what he was capable of.

On one of our LifeWorks courses Andy received support to help him move forward, including personalised advice on writing a CV and preparing for an interview. Within a few months of completing the course Andy was successful in securing a permanent role with Virgin Trains as a Hospitality Host.

“THE COURSE WAS GREAT; COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING I’VE DONE BEFORE”
