Sean Molino BCA

Sean spent 6 years with 1st Battalion Welsh Guards, serving as a PTI and one year with the reserves.

Sean holds the positions of Managing Director of Forces Fitness Ltd, Founder of the Veterans Awards CIC and is also an ambassador for the Welsh Governments Big Ideas Wales program. This program is aimed to encourage young adults aged between 16-25 to think of the option of self employment!

” I am generally a positive person and definitely believe in keeping a positive outlook and mind-set. I wanted to reward our Military Veterans that are going above and beyond and those companies that support us by promoting all the positives that are happening within our community through our social media sites! I’m a firm believer in Positivity breeding positivity!”

“I see our Shortlisted Finalists and award winners as role models for our future service leavers and In some cases even mentors! ”

” The social media sites and awards evenings have been great for networking and I’ve had so much feedback from attendees who are now working with each other on future projects!”

“I don’t want our awards to just about the winners, I see our award evenings as nights to celebrate the success of all our veterans on Civvy Street and the feel of the awards ceremonies In Wales and England this year was exactly that!”

“I am extremely proud to have set this up as a fully not for profit from 2020 and bring on a great board of directors who work in a voluntary capacity. These directors ensure that the money raised over our costs gets invested back into projects/ programs that will aid our veterans who need it and also support those charities that support us. We had an amazing 2019 and I can’t wait to kick the year off with Scotland 2020, huge thanks to everyone who has supported us this year and to those who have already committed to supporting us during 2020! ”

” Let’s spread the positive messages from within our Veteran Community together, our awards are your awards!”

Our vision has always been to turn the Veterans Awards into a Not for Profit CIC so that money generated can be re- invested back Into our Veteran Community & I’m pleased to say from April 2020 we have a Voluntary Board of Directors to decide how the money will be allocated and to make those all important decisions regarding the Veterans Awards.

Bev Garside

“I have supported the charity sector through my business since 2001 & have held unpaid governances role on a variety of charities over the years.

Through LinkedIn, I connected with a large number of Armed Forces personnel including those who are currently serving, service leavers & veterans. I am always impressed with the resourcefulness, resilience & compassion they demonstrate.

In my spare time I love endurance challenges as a means of fundraising for charity & the ABF Soldiers Charity keep me busy with these.

Through my friendship with Sean Molino & Forces Fitness I became involved in the Welsh Veterans Awards, sponsoring the Community Award.

My company, Empower Support for the Voluntary Sector is an Armed Forces Covenant Silver Award holder.

I am extremely excited about joining the board of the Veterans Awards CIC”

Mr Scott Johnson

Scott is a former Royal Engineer having spent most of his 8 years service in EOD.

Scott now runs Veteran Owned UK which is the UK’s largest community of amazing businesses owned by serving members of the armed forces, veterans or their spouses.

” I am very passionate about promoting the positive achievements of the armed forces community especially within business and it’s a great privilege to have been asked to become a Voluntary board member for the Veterans Awards CIC, I am certainly looking forward to hearing the Inspiring stories and working with the other board members to promote the positives within our veteran Community”

Mr Michael Punter

Mike was awarded the Bridgend Mayor’s Award for services to the community in 2019 and will be a huge asset on our board of directors. We feel a balance of Military Veterans and Civilians who support us is key for us to drive our Not for profit forward.

“I am extremely proud of our Armed Forces personnel and understand the sacrifices they make for our Queen and country. It’s a true honour to be appointed on the Board of directors in a voluntary capacity for the veterans Awards, as Veterans have given so much for our country and I am happy to help and assist where I can. I am always keen to be involved in community groups with a focus on community and commitment to help others deliver their own passion for a project”

Veterans Employment & Training Solutions (V.E.T.S) Main Sponsors for the Veterans Awards 2020

 

We are extremely proud to announce that  Veterans Employment & Training Solutions (V.E.T.S) will become our Veterans Awards Main Sponsor for 2020!

Veterans Employment & Training Solutions (V.E.T.S) is very proud to be part of the Veterans Awards as Paul Lewis, The Managing Director is a Veteran himself and he has been in recruitment for 9 years and is an ex-army sergeant serving for over 20 years.  Although his business is recruitment of ex-forces into employment when they have left the armed forces, he believes that there is not enough support out there for our veterans and these awards shows recognition to them all in many ways.

Veterans Employment & Training Solutions provide a bespoke specialized recruitment solution for employers looking to recruitment ex-forces personnel either straight from the armed forces or with commercial experience.  We also offer a unique candidate registration data base, where that the candidate can register with V.E.T.S and have their very own profile, which they can maintain at any time and be alerted with job alerts to industry information.

V.E.T.S also offer a training solution package for either Candidate or Employer, who are looking to training in areas of Driver Training, Transport Management and Work Place Training at a discounted price to any Veteran or Companies that are looking to send their employed veterans.  Also in 2020, we are looking to expand our courses range.

Regardless of the duration of your military service (whether you were a “lifer” or had a relatively short stint of duty serving), transitioning into the civilian workforce upon your separation is never quite as simple or as straightforward a process as it appears to be on the surface

Not only is life in the civilian world a dramatic shift away from the regimented, disciplined, and structured world of the military, finding the right opportunity to leverage the skills and experience you generated while serving – and turning it into a lucrative career – can also be a bit of an uphill battle.

For decades now, though, we here at Veterans Employment & Training Solutions (V.E.T.S) have been helping to connect veterans with businesses and job openings that can become lucrative careers, as well as businesses with veteran employees that bring a perspective, discipline, and unique skill set to the table that traditional civilians can’t.

Welcome to our Welsh & English Veterans Awards Champions

What an amazing 2019 We’ve had celebrating the success of our Military Veteran community in England and Wales, so many inspiring stories , people and amazing businesses that have supported us!

Thank you to everyone who has supported our Awards and of course all those who were nominated and attended our Award Ceremonies!

Remember the Veterans Awards are here to spread the positive messages from our Veteran community and if you need something circulated that will benefit us please do send it in to our team!

Here’s an Introduction to our Two Amazing Veterans Awards Champions –

 

Well done to Barry John MBE from The VC Gallery who has become out first Welsh Veterans Awards Champion sponsored by TASC Holdings Ltd!

“Just being at the very first Welsh Veterans awards was very special, to be nominated by my peers and the public in two categories even more special but then to win both and also become the Welsh Veterans champion on the evening was such an honour.

All nominees have done so much in their respective areas of Wales for the community and especially Veterans and it was because of this recognition the awards are unique.

I would like to thank everyone who is making a difference in Wales, the staff at the VC Gallery and everyone that believed in my vision, to Sean and his team for showing veterans in a positive light and to everyone who was nominated in all the categories in what was the first ever Welsh Veterans Awards and I know it will become a big event in the calendar for many years to come.

Thank you”

Barry John MBE
The VC Gallery

We caught up with the amazing Ken Hames MBE, former SAS Officer who became our English Veterans Awards Inspiration of the year (Sponsored by Ridge steel) and overall English Veterans Awards Champion (Sponsored by Barratt Homes) here’s what he had to say-

I would like to say what an honour it is to receive the award of Veteran’s Award Champion. It came as an unexpected surprise to be nominated and an even greater one to win my category and the overall award. I apologise for my absence which was unavoidable but hope that everybody enjoyed the spectacle.

In a real sense this and the other awards are for all veterans, who are out there everyday helping those that are less fortunate, or who are suffering from mental health challenges. We also need to be mindful of those working in difficult circumstances with little recognition. They all deserve our support.

A lot has been achieved but there is still much to do. I encourage everybody to try and work together and share the burden while seeking new ways to help our boys and girls who do not necessarily get as much assistance or publicity as they should do.

A big shout out to the Veterans Awards Scheme that has gone to enormous lengths to promote and publicise the hard work and dedication of all veterans.

Thank you

Kenneth Hames MBE
English Veteran’s Award Champion

Meet the Judges at the English Veterans Awards

Peter Bates OBE – Regional Director ABF The Soldiers’ Charity

Peter Bates was commissioned into the Royal Artillery in 1979 and served the majority of his regimental career in the Airborne and Commando brigades, serving on operational tours during Op Corporate (the Falklands War), in Northern Ireland, the jungle, Bosnia and Iraq. In addition to Regimental duty he has been Chief of Staff of the UK Artillery Brigade and held many staff appointments, with the majority being in training and procurement environments. He has a BSc and MA and was appointed an OBE in the 2008 New Years Honours list.

In 2013, Col Bates left the army early and spent two years as Business Development Director at a group of schools in Bath, raising over £1.3Million in under two years. Despite the success this was short-lived incursion into the education sector and from September 2014 he worked as an army reservist virtually full time, coordinating and delivering all Ten Tors activity for three years. After relinquishing that role he worked as part of the Military Civil Integration Team on behalf of the Comd HQ SW before accepting his new job with  the Soldiers’ Charity, which is a vital, time-consuming and demanding appointment.  ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the National Charity of the British Army. The Soldiers’ Charity began in 1944 as the Army Benevolent Fund and rebranded in 2010 to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. With help from the public we support soldiers, veterans and their families who need our help, either by supporting individuals directly or through our partner delivery charities

 

 

Nick Wilson Co-founder of 360Wellbeing

A Mental Health support company providing a better understanding of Mental Health to the workplace, and founder of First Step Forward CIC, who provides Mental Health guidance and training to Veterans and Partners of Military service personnel. With an aim to empower individuals, to better manage their own symptoms and lives, whilst awaiting professional support.

Nick is also a Veteran, serving 14 years in the Army and deploying on multiple extremely demanding operations around the world. This is followed by eight successful years in business to date, which includes building a highly successful £1/4million Chauffeur company in his first two years in business.

Therefore, Nick is very aware of what it takes to transition from the military into society and further still into business, especially for those with additional struggles such as physical or mental injuries, with Nick himself managing Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a debilitating spinal injury. He sees this as an opportunity to “Give back” to his comrades in arms, to celebrate them all, with every one of them being winners and heroes, and to say thank you to the employers who take the time to see the value in them.

Alex Williams and Victoria Beacham  Founders at Royal Educare.

Alex oversees the business development and the recruitment department, where Victoria manages the finance, back office and company accounts. We decided to be sponsors at this year’s English Veterans awards due to being a family of Military background, we understand the transition from Military life to Civvy Street can be difficult. We wanted to give recognition to those Veterans that have not only achieved and succeeded the transition but have gone on to achieve great things in their life. It’s a privilege to be part of such a rewarding event.

 

 

Nia –  Wyn Evans, Solicitor at Hugh James Cardiff

I am a solicitor at Hugh James, Cardiff. I work within the military team  representing military and ex-military servicemen and women.
Whilst speaking to military and ex-military personnel on a daily basis I am all too familiar with the difficulties veterans can face when leaving service.  I wanted to join the judging panel for the Veteran Awards to celebrate veterans who have made a successful transition from military to civilian life, whilst also assisting veterans who have faced difficulties when returning to civilian life as part of my role as a solicitor
