New initiative will help veterans move into careers in rural sector

A national networking platform to help ex-military personnel looking to move into careers in the rural sector, and their future employers, has been launched.

One of our partner’s Highground, a charity that helps current and former military personnel transition from the Forces to employment in the rural sector were at the launch, which took place this month in Gloucestershire.

Known as “The Rural List Cirencester” and associated with The Liquid List - - it will develop into monthly events at the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) for both ex-Service personnel and employers from across the rural economy.

The initiative, which is the only sector-specific veteran networking event in the country, is the brainchild of Fiona Galbraith, a former army officer and postgraduate student of the RAU.
