Extension for military placement scheme

Skills for Logistics is extending the Military Work Placement Scheme until 31st August 2013.

The pilot enabling 1,000 funded work placements, which was formally launched by SfL and The Logistics Guild last November, was due to end on 31 March.

SfL chief Dr Mick Jackson said: “This is tremendous news for the Logistics Sector as well as for those leaving the armed forces who are seeking a new career. The enthusiasm with which the pilot programme has been greeted is a clear indication of the potential that the Military Work Placement Scheme has to help more men and women cross the bridge between the leaving the armed forces and taking a role in a civilian logistics operation.”
