Army and Navy Brought Together

Amy Sellick and Rob Clements join LTC

During their time serving in the Armed Forces, Amy Sellick and Rob Clements were on opposing teams in the friendly Army vs Navy rivalry.

Now on Civvy Street, the pair find themselves on the same side, with both taking up trainee scaffolder positions at LTC Specialist Scaffolding Ltd.

Amy, who joined the Navy as a Writer (HR) after finishing a Law degree, and Rob, who served four years in the Household Cavalry Life Guard regiment, joined LTC in July of this year.

After completing their CISRS COTS course and spending a short time in the yard, they have been predominantly working on housing and hospital projects, respectively.

Both will attend Part 1 Scaffolding Operative courses in Spring 2022. The costs of their training up to becoming qualified scaffolders will be fully covered by the NASC’s Armed Forces Training Fund, a £150,000 pot aimed at encouraging more ex-Forces personnel into the scaffolding industry.

LTC Specialist Scaffolding Ltd Manager Director Steve Willis said: “Due to our depot locations, we have several historic ties to the Armed forces. We are delighted to add Amy and Rob to a long list of ex Armed forces personnel who are now working for LTC.

“We hope they are able to find a career within the many facets of our business. The Armed Forces Training Funding offered by NASC will encourage and assist employers like ourselves to focus more on employing ex Service personnel in addition to offering a more attractive proposition to potential candidates.”
