A state-of-the-art training facility has placed five ex-Ministry of Defence service leavers in the gas servicing industry.
Killingworth-based Gas Training at Kier has supported more than 100 candidates in securing vital qualifications.
The programme also enables trainees to undertake crucial work experience placements within Kier itself to further their careers.
Kier regional director, Mike Furze, said: “Having service leavers within our training team, we are perfectly positioned to provide support and advice for trainees as well as the practical skills and experience required for their future careers.”
