1. “DM” served for 11 years as a British Army Captain
“I have greatly benefited from the coaching and mentoring programme I have had with Matt. The areas we’ve covered include identifying career development and planning, as well as preparing for interviews while coping with such a big change. Testing was also used along with one-to-one coaching sessions to explore personality type and for assessing mental toughness in handling transition. Setting clear goals for each session from the start, which were always revisited made sure everything had been covered. By working with After the Military I have a clear plan, stronger skills for the jobs market and feel confident about starting a new career.”

2. “GM” was a corporal in the UK armed-forces
“I’ve worked with Matthew at After the Military by looking at my career options and he’s made me realise that finding new a job doesn’t have to be a struggle. Working like this has also helped me to regain my focus properly since finishing in the Army. I find it difficult to think I would have been able to get where I am today without his help”.

3. “SM” was a Lance-Corporal in the Army
“Working with Matt has been really helpful and the exercises we did worked well. Since doing the coaching I have been able to use the skills when I want to. I do better planning and prioritise as well as manage my time better at work, with my son and with my hobbies and other interests.”
