As our JLR Armed Forces Community Network lead, Mike Burton recently got the chance to represent Halewood at a national service leavers and careers event / track day at Silverstone!
A team of around 15 JLR network members provided careers advice, mentoring and experiences for over 300 service leavers. The event was a great success showing off our experiences and vehicles.
Volunteers with over 200 cars also came to take the service leavers around the track in some very impressive cars!
One veteran who has had a particularly tough time told us, “It’s my first Mission event and to see the amount of businesses who are actively supporting service leavers and veterans is staggering and the advice is well received. I feel so confident in getting employment now, it’s really changed my perspective on things.”
Mike had a great day telling us, “Though we’re not recruiting at the moment the ongoing work we do as an Armed Forces Covenant Gold Alumni holders is fantastic and I urge everyone to support this great cause, it really makes the difference to people.”
It looks like a great day, for a worthy cause, great job Mike! If you’d like to get involved or find out more please contact Mike Burton: firstname.lastname@example.org.
