Former service personnel in South Yorkshire were given a talk about how to get back on the career ladder.

Rotherham Military Community Veterans Centre hosted a visit by Major Adrian Peters, national director of the Recovery Career Services organisation.

The venture was set up this year to provide the extra support needed by those seriously injured in service of their country during their resettlement back into civilian life.

Steve Bentham-Bates, life vice president of the veterans centre, said: “A packed room of veterans listened intently to how the RCS helps those in most need of assistance with mentoring, work placements, interview training and job finding.

“The organisation empowers wounded, injured and sick service personnel to achieve fulfilling second careers and move forward their lives once more.”

Rotherham Military Community Veterans Centre was established after the town signed a Military Covenant, which ensures a commitment to give extra help to former service personnel in need.
