Meet our team
RFEA helps veterans and service leavers across the whole of the UK; to do this effectively we need to have people based in every region. Meet our Scotland team!
If you’re based in Scotland, you’re in luck. We’ve got an excellent team covering all aspects of RFEA’s services across the nation.
We’re part of the Career Transition Partnership in Scotland. Elaine Middleton, our Employer Relationship Manager, is based in Edinburgh. She works with Scottish employers to promote hiring ex-Forces personnel and identify suitable job opportunities for inclusion on RightJob, our jobs board available exclusively to service leavers and veterans.
Bill from the CTP Future Horizons team supports Early Service Leavers (ESLs) across Scotland. ESLs served less than four years and are often much younger than other veterans. Elaine Mason helps Wounded Injured and Sick Service Leavers within the CTP Assist Programme. She offers personalised assistance to those who, due to the nature of their injuries, face the most significant barriers to employment.
Our work supporting Veterans in Scotland is funded by Poppyscotland, Veterans Scotland, the MOD Covenant Fund, ABF The Soldiers Charity, The RAF Benevolent Fund, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Greenwich Hospital. We couldn’t reach as many people as we do without their help. Annette and Leanne, our two Ex-Forces Programme Advisors, work closely with PoppyScotland to help Veterans find their next career.
We also work in partnership with Walking With The Wounded to deliver their Home Straight Programme, providing employment support to veterans in temporary accommodation from Scottish Veterans Residences. Will covers Glasgow and Broughty Ferry and Kenneth is based in Edinburgh.
If you’re in Scotland and need help, either finding work or filling your vacancies, get in touch. Our team will be happy to help!
