Boston Energy welcomes Armed Forces leavers for training to complete their transition into the wind industry.

Accredited by the Armed Forces Covenant, Boston Energy is dedicated to helping Armed Forces leavers begin a new career in renewable energy.

After a successful ex-forces recruitment event, which took place at Boston Energy Head Office in June, we were delighted to welcome our new recruits back to complete their GWO training.

Our new trainees come from varied backgrounds in the armed forces, such as the Navy, Royal Marines and the Army. With their transferable skills, such as engineering and mechanical, they are able to transition to a career on the turbines, allowing them to progress further with skills they have already mastered during their time in the Armed Forces.

This week the team came one step closer to becoming fully certified wind technicians. We caught up with them as they completed their Generic Crane User training with Boston Energy training instructor, Jason.


Bryann came to Boston Energy from the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.

“I’d spoken to a few people who said the wind industry was very ex-military populated, so I knew that the people I would be working with would be no-nonsense, professional and get the job done!

“I would 100% recommend Boston Energy to people leaving the Armed Forces, as from being here with these technicians, my expectations have been met. Our instructor, Jason, was experienced, and it was great to get his level of insight throughout.”


Spent his career with the Queen’s Royal Hussars

“I’ve always had an interest in renewable energy, and I know a few people who have left the Armed Forces and begun a career in the industry. It sounded like an interesting career path.

“Boston Energy provided us with the training we needed to get started in the wind industry – usually with other companies, it’s a requirement that you have it already. I’d applied to a few places and not heard anything for months whereas, with Boston Energy, everything was sorted quickly. The fact that the training is provided is already a good way into the industry.”

At Boston Energy, we pride ourselves on providing the opportunity for Armed Forces leavers to train with us, work with us and grow in a new career supported by us and the clients we serve.
