It’s no secret that transitioning into civilian life when leaving the forces can be challenging, even at the best of times. Finding work in the construction industry is often a great solution for people leaving the forces. We caught up with Ashley, an ex-forces candidate now working on-site at Stanstead Airport.

Ashley explained the process of leaving the army and what transferable skills you, as ex-forces, will have. These skills transfer extremely well in the construction industry. Therefore employers are always keen to hire the freshest ex-forces candidates. Click the video below to view the full 4 minute interview.
