Forces Recruitment Services (West Midlands) specialise in placing Ex-Military candidates into Civilian Employment. This includes members of the Armed Forces that are currently leaving, as well as those who have already left.
Paul Lewis - Regional Director
Paul joined the Army in 1989 and served in many roles, including being a member of the Adjutants General Corps where he achieved the rank of Sergeant. Paul served in many places around the world including the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, and Germany and has been on Operational Tours to Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Iraq.
Having been medically discharge from the Army unexpectedly, Paul decided to look for a new career direction that still maintained a link with the Armed Forces whilst giving him the opportunity to take control of his own destiny by being his own boss.
Paul’s 21 year service history with the Army has given him not only an excellent background of working in a demanding role but also a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills that he has been able to carry forward into his role as Regional Director of Forces Recruitment Services (East Birmingham). Being highly motivated and self driven are key attributes that Paul uses to carry his business forward and make it a success.
Paul feels that his own knowledge of the military and the resettlement process enable him to find the right candidates for the right clients. Coupled together with good knowledge of how trades and skills transfer from the military to the commercial market, Paul is confident that the FRS (East Birmingham) office will be able to provide a first rate service to both candidates and clients.
