From athlete's to army veterans the Morson Ambassadors programme partners with inspiring individuals who can motivate and educate our clients, candidates and employee's.
Our ambassadors are from different backgrounds with a range of life experiences, but they all share a drive, determination and integrity which is why they are part of the Morson family.
From breaking down barriers with mental health and raising autism awareness to championing women in the workplace and resettlement, our ambassadors bring new perspectives and positive influence.
Current Morson Ambassadors include:
Andy Reid | Afghanistan army veteran and author of 'Andy Reid - Standing Tall'
Corporal Andy Reid lost both his legs and right arm after stepping on an IED plate whilst serving with the 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment in Afghanistan in 2009. After spending only 2 weeks in hospital before returning home after his injury, Andy is a testament to overcoming adversity with a positive mindset.
Andy was chosen as a Morson Ambassador as his determination and optimism means that he is a role model, not only for the forces, but for the wider community.
The partnership between Morson and Andy aims to get more ex-forces personnel into employment by using his knowledge of the forces community in conjunction with Morson's recruitment expertise.
I hope to develop the relationship with Morson by helping to recruit more armed forces personnel. There’s a lot of guys out their who’ve got great skills and when they leave the armed forces some of those skills aren’t used anymore. I can see where within Morson Group those skills can be used. There’s a lot that the armed forces can offer when they leave service and Morson is an ideal place for them to explore that.
We hope this partnership will develop and grow, making a real difference to the resettlement of forces personnel.
Adrian Head, Morson client development manager, who knows Andy well explains why Andy Reid is such an inspiration and a great ambassador for Morson…
Andy’s been through a lot of adversity himself, but he doesn’t lose sight of people who are less fortunate than he is. He’s able to connect with these people. He understands that coming out of a period of the navy, army or airforce and trying to transition across into civvy street can be difficult.
Morson have a demonstrable track record of putting ex-forces people into work, assignments and permanent employment and we want to build on this. We want to put that something back and Andy is going to be able to help us do that.
