HEROES IN HARD HATS
Providing work opportunities for service leavers each year.
Heroes in Hard Hats specialise in setting up work placements for ex-service personnel, along with those who have been discharged from the military on medical grounds.
Heroes in Hard Hats project is also to assist injured ex-service personnel transition back into meaningful employment through our 6 step program.
SJA has designed this project to assist injured ex-service personnel
in their transition back into meaningful employment. We specialise in
setting up work placements for ex-service personnel who have been
discharged from the military on medical grounds. Injuries range from
physical disabilities to psychological trauma.
Throughout the recruitment process and placement we offer support
on a one to one and group basis to build the confidence and skills
employees need to succeed in their new role within the construction
SJA were fortunate enough to pilot the Heroes in Hard Hats project at the
Defence National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) in Loughborough founded
by the late Duke of Westminster. The DNRC, which opened in March 2018,
is a state of the art treatment and research facility for armed forces
personnel and will take over from the existing Headley Court.
We have successfully placed 11 injured ex service personnel at the
DNRC and it has been an inspiration and privilege to be part of such a
wonderful project. After the success of our pilot scheme, SJA will now
be launching Heroes in Hard Hats on construction projects
throughout the UK.
We would like the opportunity to form a partnership with your business
in promoting the Heroes in hard Hats and in turn helping more injured
ex-service personnel succeed and thrive in civilian life.
