For Ex-Military Personnel

The Land-Based Sector: An Introduction

Anna Baker Cresswell from HighGround joins us to discuss the opportunities for ex-military personnel in the land-based sector and the impact of Covid-19.

Ex-military personnel have the skills and experiences to fit those needed in the land-based sector, and HighGround is pioneering an initiative to link them to employers who recognise this.

HighGround has pioneered Rural Weeks as the place to start your life beyond the military – outdoors. With the aim of introducing you to the following areas in the land-based sector:

  • Land Management
  • Environmental Outdoor Design, Production and Leisure
  • Animal Care

Virtual Rural Week aims to keep the ball in play for Service leavers and veterans looking towards employment and self-employment in the land-based sector. The first Virtual Rural Week will take place on 15th - 17th June and HighGround are planning for the autumn programme to start on 13th September.
