Recruit for Spouses- West Scotland
We were delighted to attend the opening of Recruit for Spouses’ West of Scotland office in Helensburgh yesterday (23 January).
Over the next year Recruit for Spouses will be making use of expert support to expand its services throughout Scotland by becoming more visible, creating more opportunities for military spouses, hosting career-based workshops and rolling out further nation-wide recruitment drives.
“Helping military spouses into work is our main objective and by opening an office in Helensburgh we are able to bring the opportunities and support that has proven so successful and beneficial to our wider community.” – Heledd Kendrick, CEO of Recruit for Spouses.
Our Regional Liaison Officer for Scotland and Northern Ireland, Mark Harris, has been working locally with the Recruit for Spouses team, after originally introducing Heledd to the area in September 2016.
“This great initiative has come just at the right time for Service families in Helensburgh as HMNB Clyde, along with Argyll and Bute Council, prepare for an uplift of over 1000 Service personnel to the area as it becomes home to the Royal Navy’s Submarine Centre of Specialisation. It’s an exciting time.”
