After leaving the Services in 2011, he went on to work at the London 2012 Olympics and is now looking to expand into the International Market with ILM.

Nick Piper, who was commissioned into the Royal Engineers in 2005, will offer valuable insight into what can be expected for those undergoing resettlement.
