For Mentors And Supporters

 It is a common occurrence to hear that a veteran is struggling with the transition from military to civilian life but for the uninitiated, it is difficult to emphasise with the situation or more importantly, know how to help. It is our belief at Project Recce that shared experience is vital to providing that support. We have built our community around an ethos of a common set of core values, so regardless of whether you have served or not, if you want to help members of the armed forces community to enter a new career in the construction industry, you are needed. Across the construction industry, we have built a network of mentors both with a military background and construction expertise. This is what makes this project so special. Society is truly humbled by the sacrifices that veterans have given in the defence of the realm and now want to help you re-join civilian society. Project Recce acts as the conduit for that process to occur.

We will pair the correct mentor with the correct mentee, based upon your background, skills and experience. Some will need a military mentor and others more specialised support so please don’t think this isn’t something you can help with.

The challenges?

Despite what some may say, civilian employers often don’t know what veterans can bring to the table and it is very hard to just walk into a well-paid new career. We have changed that by working hard to build a network of strategic partners across the UK who now know exactly what veterans can offer to any employer. Therefore, we are in the best position to create a seamless transition from military to construction. However, the ultimate motivation must come from the individual. We offer the training and the opportunities, but it is down to the veteran to show their true capabilities.

Those who wish to progress will take advantage of the benefits of having a mentor who will help develop them beyond the course. They will be motivated, committed and prepared to take your advice on board. We provide a mentoring contract so that the mentor and mentee understand the requirements and boundaries as well as regular contact to ensure the process is running smoothly. All mentoring arrangements start with a 6-week commitment which can be ended or extended as agreed.
