Thread: Request to help an Iraq Veteran please?

    Request to help an Iraq Veteran please?

    Hi, I run a tree surgery company and I am ex forces as are some of my blokes who work for me. I am also involved with a charity which helps modern day veterans who are often battle scarred, to find a job in civilian life. I currently have one such veteran, Mark, who saw heavy action in the recent Iraq campaign, doing some work experience with us. He is very polite, punctual and holds his CS 30 and 31 tickets. He has been with us for a few days and is a very hard worker. He is 29 and holds a driving licence. I would love to offer him a job with us but he is located in Romford in Essex and the commute to us would cost him a fortune. If anyone who is a tree surgeon/landscaper/gardener is looking for a reliable pair of hands in the Romford area who will work his socks off for a reasonable wage please feel free to drop me a line at
    thanks in advance
