Military veterans will be guaranteed interviews for jobs at support services operator Landmarc, says the company's boss.
Mark Neill, managing director of Landmarc Support Services (Landmarc), who is a military veteran, said he "feels passionately" that Landmarc should match the recent commitment the government has made to veterans in guaranteeing them interviews for civil service jobs.
Guaranteed interviews for military veterans at Landmarc will start with immediate effect. As a long-standing employer of ex-service personnel, Landmarc believes that this important commitment will help the company secure the skills and experience the business needs.
A significant number of veterans already work for Landmarc at every level of the business, bringing invaluable knowledge learnt from the Armed Forces to the company's national workforce, said Neill.
"Service personnel often have the attributes we are looking for at Landmarc; agile, dedicated, strategic and excellent team players; a guaranteed interview will ensure we attract this talent and be a better business for it.
"I also recognise the unique opportunity Landmarc offers those leaving the armed forces. Our business provides support services across the UK Defence Training Estate, a familiar environment for anyone that has served and therefore a positive environment for the transition to civilian jobs - a journey that can be a challenge for some.
"Working at Landmarc keeps veterans close to the military and they become part of our mission to provide the best possible training experience for our armed forces."
There will be no time limit between leaving military service and when an ex-service person can take up the guaranteed interview offer - applicants will simply need to meet the basic minimum criteria for the job during the selection stage.
