New Armed Forces Pathway will provide free careers advice to ex-military personnel and their families
Mott MacDonald has launched its Armed Forces Pathway to encourage, guide and support ex-military personnel transitioning into the business.
The company’s Talent Acquisition Team and former Armed Forces community is providing free careers advice to ex-military personnel and their families. The programme includes practical assistance around how to shape CVs and prepare for interviews.
“The Armed Forces Pathway marks a significant step in growing and supporting our ex-military staff base, and we’re fully aware of the benefits to our business that Armed Forces experience brings," said Sally Russell, Mott MacDonald’s divisional general manager, northern England.
“We have learnt so much from colleagues that have joined us from the Armed Forces in recent years, and the breadth of experience, capabilities and transferable skills they bring really enhance our business. It is so important that we enable fulfilling careers and make the best use of their talent and knowledge.”
Mott MacDonald is also a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant Gold Award, which recognises employers who proactively demonstrate their forces-friendly credentials as part of their recruiting and selection processes.
Andy Moulds, strategic advisory portfolio lead at Mott MacDonald, said: “Our ex-forces colleagues bring a complementarity to our ability in solving complex client problems, adding new dimensions to our technical excellence.
“They contribute towards an even greater depth and professionalism in working collaboratively with customers and each other.”
