From Royal Regiment of Scotland to Persimmon

Daniel's Story
Daniel Paul, 27, from Scotland, joined Persimmon Homes South Coast as an assistant site manager in April 2014.

A former private in the Royal Regiment of Scotland, Luke served all around the world in his five year army career, including a tour of Afghanistan.

But with a young family and now settled, Daniel decided the time was right to leave the Army, and is based in the South Coast region, currently working on the Picket 20 development in Andover. As an assistant site manager he is learning his trade from the ground up and building on the valuable skills he developed in the Army.

He said: “The team building qualities that are so vital in the Army, particularly on the front line, transfer seamlessly to a construction site where everyone has to pull together to get the job done.

“That and guarantee of punctuality, key to both ‘industries’ make this new career path an ideal route for former military personnel. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
