Read our employer’s testimony from Kevin Hurst, Technical Resources Manager at BMT Asset Performance
BMT Asset Performance attended the 2016 Plymouth Armed Forces Jobs fair - as this was prior to our recent merger, we were exhibiting under the name BMT Cadence. Our intention was to find quality ex-forces people to join our growing team. Staff from our Plymouth office, all of whom are ex-RN and therefore have first-hand experience of the career transition process, were on hand to chat to the various job seekers.
Some people we spoke to just enjoyed sharing some storytelling with their former shipmates, which we always enjoy! There was also, however, a lot of interest in what we had to offer and how we could potentially assist with future career development. We enjoyed giving plenty of advice on how to go about the process of leaving the service, and how to make the best possible impression to potential future employers.
We successfully recruited David Haynes into our team as a result of attending the Jobs Fair - he approached the BMT stand, spoke to our team and the rest is history! The event is a lot more personal than a ‘cold’ advert on a website - you can immediately find out more about each other and potentially save a lot of time! We’re really looking forward to this year’s event and, hopefully, finding some new recruits!
