Armed Forces Week Case Study: John McDonough

As part of Armed Forces Week 2019, we spoke to John McDonough to ask about leaving the military and adjusting to civilian life.

What Was Your Role Within The Armed Forces?

“In the British Army, my role was a Logistic specialist in Supply, where I supported the British Army logistically at home and overseas for 8 years. I’m currently a Volunteer Adult Instructor for the Army Cadet Force, where I teach children and teenagers from the age of 12 to 18 years old valuable skills of the British Army and life skills and qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh.”

What Are The Benefits of Joining The Reservists or Armed Forces?

“Army life is no walk in the park, but the many benefits the Armed Forces offer to recruits makes joining up a great option for many young people who desire to learn new skills and progress through the ranks on a promising career path.”

Why Is It Important That Businesses Show Their Support For The Armed Forces?

“RSSI recognises the invaluable contribution Armed Forces individuals make to the community and their business, they also recognise that those individuals, previously employed by the Armed Forces Such as myself, can contribute a wealth of transferable skills and experience and that it is therefore important for RSSI as a business to support their integration into the civilian workforce in any way they can.”

How Has RSSI Supported You In Your Journey?

“RSSI has supported me in employing me as a Fleet Co-ordinator using my Knowledge gained within the Army of fleet and supply, they have also enabled me to continue giving 100% commitment to the Army Cadet force. I have gained Qualifications such as PTS which enables me to when needed on track, RSSI is a company the respects, supports and encourages the active members of the British Armed Forces and also Veterans such as myself.”
