Skills for Logistics (SfL) has announced that the Military Work Placement Scheme has been extended until 31 August 2013. The pilot programme enabling 1000 funded work placements, which was formally launched by SfL and The Logistics Guild last November, was due to end on 31 March.
Commenting on the extension, Dr Mick Jackson, CEO of Skills for Logistics, said: "This is tremendous news for the Logistics Sector as well as or those leaving the armed forces who are seeking a new career. The enthusiasm with which the pilot programme has been greeted is a clear indication of the potential that the Military Work Placement Scheme has to help more men and women cross the bridge between the leaving the armed forces and taking a role in a civilian logistics operation."
