Over a period of thirty years I have built up significant specialist and generalist experience in finance, people and projects. This experience has been gained throughout a highly successful career in the British Army culminating in my current appointment as a Commissioned Officer holding the rank of Major within a complex, cross-functional program and projects team. I am leaving the military of my own volition having settled my family in Gosport and now seek a new challenge. I am particularly interested in the education and charities sectors. I have viewed my vocation as work in the service of others and I am keen to now join an organisation which has a similar theme and outlook. Throughout my military career I have particularly enjoyed and embraced those opportunities that exist to influence people; I am energetic, personable and with high moral standards. I have extensive experience of leading, training and managing diverse teams within the human resources, financial management, training and projects fields. This diverse experience has been gained working in a myriad of challenging environments both at home and overseas and includes: • Managing a large number of public, non-public and charitable funds including responsibility for the governance, forecasting, investment and audit of funds in accordance with the National Audit Office and Charities Commission regulatory procedures. • Organising and leading social and fundraising events within the military and civilian community for 100 to 5000 people. • Planning and managing complex, multi-stakeholder infrastructure, organisational, finance and people change projects • Leading the finances, HR, people policy, personnel reporting and administration of organisations of 900+ personnel. • Leading the learning, development and administration of organisational training for 300 personnel a year, including presenting to large diverse groups. I am calm, measured, and have credibility within my field and a reputation for inspirational leadership, personal integrity and success. I have personally championed the continued need to nurture collaborative organisational and partnering relationships based upon common values, standards, mutual respect and personal example. I am self-aware and possess the emotional intelligence and social experience to inspire, enthuse and motivate a wide range of people from different social and economic backgrounds, ages, nationalities and beliefs.Learn more about this candidate

Jean Claude has been amazing in every step of the way, I’m currently two weeks into my new job a job that I never thought it was achievable..
Jean Claude give me the confidence I needed to do it very highly recommend
I have and many of my contacts have done business with J-C and Ex-Mil Recruitment Ltd, every company HR's should use his business module it is excellent.
On retiring from the Army, I was most fortunate to find such an invaluable mentor as JC. His positive approach, professionalism and shrewd insights were essential factors in my successful job application. With his personal military experience combined with a comprehensive knowledge of civilian employment requirements and opportunities, he is especially well-placed to provide guidance, scope individual needs and identify employment possibilities.
I have found the process with you and your company to be nothing short of fantastic and you have simplified it in a way, that makes your company approachable. You are a straight forward man and there is no fluff around anything you say. This is refreshing in it's approach, as most recruitment companies tend to lead you down a garden path.
You are incredibly thorough and punctual, as well as caring about the individual that is applying through your company. I find this empathy, to be nothing short of incredible and it has really helped me to maintain realistic expectations, as well as being able to openly and honestly converse with you in ways that are simply not possible with any other recruitment company.
I hope your company goes from strength to strength and hopefully you become the first port of call for members that have transitioned out of the Military, as I believe there life would be much easier in doing so.
Ex-Mil proved to be a real-boost to our business by giving us an edge over our competitors when it came to recruitment. Lee, our consultant at Ex-Mil quickly worked to understand our business and requirements for the role, zeroing in on a number of suitable high-calibre candidates

Having had a swift and effective kick-off meeting with Ex-Mil Recruitment our needs were swiftly understood. Within a week we were presented with a range of candidates for interview. Pleasingly, the individual that we subsequently recruited significantly exceeded our expectation for the role and has effectively "bought us" added capacity for the budgeted price of the role.
