Our Training Manager Tom Wallace has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Service Leaver of The Year’ category in this years’ Ex-Forces in Business Awards! The British Ex-forces in Business Awards is a standout ceremony that commemorates veterans entering the business world and comes to Scotland on 3 December.

There are many social stigmas facing military veterans when they leave service, including unfair assumptions such as they’re ill-prepared for ‘real-life’ and for ‘real work’ in the private sector. This is one of the few awards ceremonies out there that’s doing its bit to dispell these misinformed views. Instead, they’re highlighting the skill-sets of ex-military employees, including their applicability to high-level roles in the business world.

The finalists were chosen from a total of 250 nominations by a judging panel of military veterans

The winner will be announced on the 3rd December at the Gala Final Awards Dinner at the Doubletree Hilton in Glasgow.

We wish Tom the best of luck!
