CJS 25 year anniversary, congratulations from HighGround
We have been subscribers to CJS for nearly 2 years – I wish I’d found them sooner..!!
HighGround is a charity I started in 2013.
Our Mission is to Improve the wellbeing and employment prospects of serving personnel and veterans using the green environment.
We do this is 2 ways – by providing the Horticultural Therapy service for injured serving personnel at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Stanford Hall and, for those still serving and veterans who know they don’t want to work in an office but not quite sure what they want to do, we provide advice and support about opportunities in the land-based sector, with Rural Weeks at the core.
Long before they are ready to search for a job, we help them to look beyond their military identity and consider their transferable skills. Being able to direct them to CJS’s jobs board is a fantastic way for them to see that there are so many roles which they are ideally suited to – some even involve wearing camouflage…..!
I think CJS is a terrific organisation which punches well above its weight. Happy Anniversary and here’s to the next quarter century!
