1:1 Employability Support
I had some sessions with Stuart around tailoring CVs and cover letters to specific jobs as well as identifying my transferable skills. Everything was very well explained and he sent me handouts that I could refer back to when applying for roles which was very helpful. Within just a few weeks I’ve been offered full time employment in a role that really interests me. I would not hesitate to recommend SDM for anyone looking for a bit of help getting back into work or transitioning to another role/industry. Thank you Stuart!Google Review
British Army Veteran
Stu was one of those guys that nurtured you and your abilities. In the darkest of my life he helped pull together and went above and beyond his job to help not just me but my family to be better at what we already had, yet could not see. I will always be eternally grateful and appreciative for what Stu has done. You won’t regret having this man help you, whichever area that may be in. Thank you Stu, you don’t know the special gift you have.
AfghanOppO Workshop (Partnership with JobOppO)
Thank you for inviting me to this AfghanOppO employability workshop, the workshop was very useful and I applied the techniques you taught which got me my desired job which is a stepping stone for me as an Afghan who just arrived in the UK on the start of Oct 2021. I have learned a lot in the interview techniques, especially developing self-confidence and selling yourself with a relaxed mind, position, appearance, and presentation of your CV. I appreciate how you describe the most challenging issue in a very simple and unique way. You were instrumental in helping me begin a new chapter of my life, I could find the work to express my gratitude for helping me connect the dots and getting me to the right stage of mindset and confidence I will never ever forget what you have done for me.

JobOppO contacted Stu from SDM Training Services to request support with designing content for our Veterans Employability Skills Development Series. We were aware of Stu's experience and shared passion for supporting veterans into meaningful employment and were delighted with his hugely worthwhile input into the design and development of this innovative and useful package. Thanks Stu and we look forward to continuing to work with you.
During my transition from the military, I met Stu from SDM Training Services, who was and still is very supportive and encouraging. Stu always made time to offer guidance and advice on my CV, Mock Interviews and reviewing my Interview feedback. SDM Training Services is versatile, can offer support and guidance in whichever area that you may require. I am forever grateful for all your continuous support and advice.
