- Transferable skills; the Armed Forces teach a wide range of specialised trades and disciplines that personnel are regularly tested on. A lot of these skill sets are also found in the energy sector and former service men and women demonstrate an excellent ability to adapt and learn new trades.
- Excellent teamwork; the military are masters at understanding and teaching team working. Each service person implicitly understands his or her roles, those of their commanding officers’ and those of their subordinates. This training provides them with excellent team leading, delegation and managerial skills.
- “Can do” attitude; Service people are trained to achieve their objectives against all odds. They are used to working to strict deadlines, with limited resources and still getting the job done. Triumphing over adversity used to be their day jobs and they could bring this level of grit and determination to your company.
