LEEA Takes Military Action

The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) has launched a 75–75 military transition scheme as part of its 75th anniversary celebrations.

In honour of this special anniversary, the 75–75 scheme will offer military leavers, veterans and reservists the chance to train and receive a work placement in our sector.

Working with the Careers Transition Partnership, who will find 75 recruits from the military, LEEA will provide FREE training – either on current courses or on standalone courses for military personnel. LEEA members will also be offering 75 work placements. Because of the nature of the association’s UK membership, these will be geographically dispersed across the entire UK – from Edinburgh or Exeter.

The placements are not guaranteed jobs but will offer the invaluable experience of two days working alongside experienced staff.

“The result of this scheme will see 75 military leavers work-ready for the civilian lifting sector,” said Ross Moloney, CEO of LEEA. “This helps military leavers to more easily make the transition into civilian workplace, while also providing an important pool of talent for the lifting sector, thus helping to address our urgent skills sustainability issue. We hope that our members see this as a chance to support military leavers looking to become more employable, and we also hope that we’ll be able to report that some of the 75 have secured employment with our members.”
