Peter was in the RAF for 23 years and left to continue in a similar role at Augusta Westland working with Search and Rescue Helicopters. When his contract came to an end, Gateshead College recommended that he get in touch with us.

Peter secured a placement on the ‘Step into Health Programme’ set-up to encourage careers in the NHS for ex-forces by Walking with the Wounded.  This placement showed Peter the need for technical skills in the NHS and he worked within a team that recognised his skills and experience.  He has accepted a permanent job.
