The Hire a Hero Career Coaching Scheme supports all ex-military personnel. From one day to a full service, redundancy, medical or voluntary discharge, we aim to support all ex-military personnel to make the transition from service to civilian life.

Why become a Career Coach with Hire a Hero? 

Working with a Career Coach gives ex-military personnel an individual point of contact on the other side of the fence as well as regular and reliant support. The time moving between military and civilian life can raise a number of issues for members of the armed forces. This can lead to uncertainty, vulnerability and beginning on a downward spiral.

Becoming a Career Coach with Hire a Hero means that you are an important and integral part of preventing this downward spiral for the ex-military personnel you support. The relationship is on-going and is only closed when the service leaver is fully settled in civilian life.

Volunteering as a Career Coach is one of the most rewarding ways to get involved with us. You have a direct impact on making the transition from service to civilian life a positive experience for those who have served.

Could you be a Hire a Hero Career Coach? 

As a Career Coach you will be required to provide support to service leavers and veterans.

You will be able to provide individual, tailored support to service leavers by using your own skills, knowledge, network and civilian life experience to offer valuable advice and guidance to ex-military personnel in their transition period.

Many Career Coaches have a military background and their own transition story to share but with or without we would love to hear from anyone who feels they may have something to offer.  Civilian experience is just as important in helping service leavers to adapt to life and employment on Civvy Street.

To join the Hire a Hero team as a Career Coach you are required to attend a one day training session where you will receive all the necessary training needed to effectively support service leavers transitioning.

Career Coaches and service leavers are carefully paired dependent on a number of factors to ensure the best match which will in turn benefit both the service leaver and the Career Coach. You will dedicate a few hours a week to supporting up to two service leavers at any one time.

How does it differ from other support programmes? 

Hire a Hero offers support to all those who have served, past, present and future and will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. Our career coaching can also be undertaken over the phone, via email or through Skype depending on the needs of the service leaver.
