It is now just over a year since ICTS became a partner of the Veterans Employment Transition Support (VETS) programme, offering mentoring services to veterans, i.e. anyone who has served in the UK armed forces (including reserves).
As a Company, we have undergone a period of unprecedented growth, with an increase in staff in the last year or so, and thus are currently campaigning to get our new personnel on board the scheme and become mentors.
Jon Cermak, ICTS Senior Contracts Manager, Corporate and Public Sector Services, says, “I joined ICTS in 2013 through the ICTS Military Service Transition Advice and Resettlement Training (START) programme and thus know first-hand what it is like to transition from military to civilian life.
In the last year, I too have become a mentor through the VETS programme, providing guidance and support to 3-4 ex-servicemen. I am enjoying the opportunity; it is a worthwhile thing to do and a way of giving back to the community.”
