Royal Marine Barney builds a new career in demolition

Picture of Barney Barnett

Royal Marine Barney Barnett was given just three months to get ready for civilian life – and to line up a civilian career – after his hearing was damaged by years on operations and exercises.

He came to RFEA for our help and support, and is now in a fulfilling career.

Using the people skills and adaptability he developed over his forces career, Barney is now working in the demolition industry as a project manager.

I wouldn’t be where I am right now if it weren’t for [RFEA]. Never be too proud just to ask for help.
