Supporting our UK veterans with recruitment opportunities
At Paramount, we appreciate there is a wide range of ex-service people throughout the UK who are interested in or actively looking for new opportunities after leaving the forces.
And we know that ex-service personnel have a lot to offer, in terms of talent, skill, experience and commitment. For these reasons, Paramount is looking to hire a range of forces veterans through the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Career Transition Partnership (CTP); a service that has supported leavers of the Armed Forces for over 20 years.
We are particularly interested in applications from sawyers and timber frame/engineered wood product assembly operatives. And we see this as an excellent opportunity to help close the widely reported skills gap while providing rewarding careers for our vets.
UK vets are the perfect fit for Paramount
The skills and attributes ex-forces personnel can provide are exactly what we’re looking for at Paramount:
- Accustomed to operating in complex environments
- Effective teamwork
- Harnessing cutting edge technology
- Capable in demanding and pressurised situations
- Responsible, ensuring the job gets done right first time
We also appreciate that service leavers are typically quick to learn, pick up new skills and adapt to new circumstances. Of course, many abilities have been honed within some of the toughest environments, and these qualities, such as self-discipline, motivation and strong problem-solving, will give Paramount and keen ex-service people the perfect complementary working relationship.
If you’re a UK veteran, your highly transferable skills, backed by your moral and physical courage, are what will stand you in great stead for making a real difference at Paramount. It’s your chance to experience a new and enjoyable opportunity too.
We consider recruiting ex-services personnel to be an honour. It’s a chance to support local vets’ careers while driving our business forward with the most skilled and capable team members.
If you’re an ex-service person and are interested in joining Paramount, we’d love to hear from you.
