EYC Global choose Walking With The Wounded as their Charity of The Year – Supporting ex-military personnel to integrate back into society via Employment and Training

EYC Global announce first ever charity partnership with Walking With The Wounded.


Paul Verghese, Group Chief Executive Officer at EYC Global, commented: “EYC is immensely proud and privileged to be partnering with such a fantastic charity and one that is closely aligned to our core values. The partnership with WWTW is fundamental to our ethos– Enhance Your Career – and we are thrilled to be able to support veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country. To give them the opportunity to share their skill and expertise into the Rail industry, is perfect and, based on my extensive experience in the Rail sector,  veterans make exceptional Engineers as they have transferable skills and an aligned work ethic to meet the demands of the role .” 


Paul added;  “As a long standing Railwayman, I’ve grown up through the sector and what kept me engaged in the industry was the discipline & attention to detail required, opportunities for progression and it really being a ‘career for life’. Each of these factors match perfectly with ex-military talent, their existing skills and inherent values. For me, to now be leading an organisation that holds these same values to heart and partnering with such a meaningful charity allows us to complete the full circle and open doors into long term careers in the Rail sector for these exceptional individuals.”

 

EYC Global are committed to supporting Walking With The Wounded. The EYC team have already launched several internal initiatives to raise funds by participating in and supporting the charity’s comprehensive programme of events.

 

As an ongoing project, the team will be supporting WWTWs beneficiaries to explore a new career in the Rail Sector through Apprenticeship and Training programmes across integral UK infrastructure hubs in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Derby, Liverpool, Leeds and Newcastle.
