Recruiting veterans to fill your skills gap - BBC Lincs

Posted on 17 November 2021

RecruitME’s very own Howard Rudder has been interviewed by BBC Lincolnshire this week to discuss recruiting veterans and how they can help fill the skills gap in many sectors.

He was joined by several veterans from one of our key clients who have come straight out of the Army, Royal Navy and RAF to join them.

In a round table conversation with a serious amount of banter and some decent biscuits, the BBC interviewer discussed with us what the transition from military life to civvy street was like, how RecruitME helped them on that journey and the enormous number of transferable skills veterans bring to a company.

In the interview, which was broadcast on the local news and in a special feature, Howard said that organisations should seriously consider recruiting service leavers and veterans as they are able to get up to speed quickly, learn at a fast rate and integrate quickly into new organisations. They are also fantastic in customer-facing roles with great people skills and give great loyalty and dedication to where they work.

So far with have placed over a dozen veterans from all three services into this cherished client who really get the benefits of hiring veterans.
