Surrey-based injection moulding firm Broanmain Plastics has appointed an ex-military employee through a partnership with CareerForces, a non-profit aimed at helping service personnel to re-enter the workplace. The venture forms part of Broanmain’s strategic plan to develop a more diverse workforce from shop floor to boardroom by investing in skillset development and employee wellbeing.

Since March 2020, ex-Air Force SNCO Tom has been working full-time as an operator at the company’s Dorking site, assisting the finishing team with post-moulding assembly and printing. Andy Howe – who launched CareerForces last year after serving four decades in the British Army and Ministry of Defence – explains why his clients are ideal employees for the private sector: “A majority of candidates are competitive, hard-working and strong team players, having been trained to deliver in the most demanding of circumstances.”
