FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS PROJECT RECCE?
Project RECCE is a charity set up with the aim of securing long-term jobs for Military Service Leavers and Veterans in the construction industry.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We deliver a 2 week course over Microsoft TEAMS every 6 weeks, that covers all the subjects needed to understand how to transition into and secure a job in the construction industry.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The course is fully funded by charitable and corporate donations, so there is no cost to the individual.
WHAT WILL I GET?
As well as an RQF Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment and a CSCS Card, you will get access to an unrivalled network of Construction Employers, keen to employ Veterans and Service Leavers. These include Balfour Beatty PLC, Sunbelt Rentals, Laing O'Rourke, Morgan Sindall, Costain, Kier and man, many more.
WILL I GET A JOB OUT OF THIS?
While we can never guarantee a job, over 70% of those that attend a Pathways into Construction Course will start full time employment in the Construction industry within 3 months of attendance.
WHAT'S THE CATCH?
There is no catch. It's a win/win situation. VSL's get secure employment in an environment to which their training and experience has made them an asset, the employers get switched-on employees, who exhibit values and standards unlike their conventional workforce, and Project RECCE gets the satisfaction of helping VSL's to make a smoother transition into work.
