Military Transition Scheme

Free training and job placements for 75 military leavers looking to enter the civilian lifting industry

The Military Transition Scheme is designed to support the transition into the civilian lifting equipment industry for veterans and reservists within 2 years of leaving military service.

The lifting equipment industry, like many others, is facing the challenge of resourcing a sustainable and skilled workforce. LEEA recognise that ex-military personnel with transferable skills can potentially provide an important additional resource to our industry and therefore we are offering a package of benefits to military veterans and reservists in support of this initiative:

  • LEEA Foundation Certificate e-Learning course
  • LEEA will provide direct links to its members who are recruiting
  • A 2-day job placement with our members
  • Possible employment with one of our global members

For further information or to register your interest, please email us at or call Andrew Wright on +44 (0)7584 190884

LEEA Members and Industry Partners

Can you offer a 2-day job placement to a military veteran or reservist looking to join the lifting industry?

We want to demonstrate tour military veterans and reservists just how wide and rewarding a career in lifting can be, but we’re asking for your help.

We’re reaching out to our Members and industry partners to find companies who would be able to offer short job placements where veterans and reservists can work alongside experienced staff and gain valuable insight to our industry and the broad range of career opportunities that are available.

We have already seen success; several of our military veterans and reservists have already secured employment with LEEA members through the Military Transition Scheme.

Veterans and reservists could be a perfect fit for your business if you’re looking for highly professional, self-motivated individuals who can use their initiative and possess a wide range of transferrable skills in areas such as:

  • Engineering
  • Leadership and management
  • Communications
  • Organisation
  • Problem solving
  • Teamwork
  • Health and safety

LEEA has also secured a discounted rate for our Members to advertise their job vacancies at The following article provided further detail:
