The Hire a Hero Career Coaching Scheme supports all ex-military personnel. From one day to a full service, redundancy, medical or voluntary discharge, we aim to support all ex-military personnel to make the transition from service to civilian life.
Our Career Coaches provide vital support to those who have served and it is one of the most rewarding ways to support Hire a Hero and our service leavers and veterans.
Why become a Career Coach with Hire a Hero?
Working with a Career Coach gives ex-military personnel an individual point of contact on the other side of the fence as well as regular and reliant support. The time moving between military and civilian life can raise a number of issues for members of the armed forces. This can lead to uncertainty, vulnerability and beginning on a downward spiral.
Becoming a Career Coach with Hire a Hero means that you are an important and integral part of preventing this downward spiral for the ex-military personnel you support. The relationship is on-going and is only closed when the service leaver is fully settled in civilian life.
You have a direct impact on making the transition from service to civilian life a positive experience for those who have served and all from just giving a couple of hours a week.
You don’t even need to meet face to face! Infact almost all of our Career Coaching relationships are carried out over the phone or by email.
Could you be a Hire a Hero Career Coach?
Hire a Hero will equip you with all the skills you need to make the Career Coaching relationships a success at our one day training course. You’ll also have the on-going support of the team.
We hear from many individuals that they don’t feel qualified enough for the role, but you’d be surprised by how much civilian insight and knowledge you have.
Many Career Coaches have a military background and their own transition story to share but this isn’t a necessity. Civilian experience is just as important in helping service leavers to adapt to life and employment on Civvy Street.
