Guys this is more specific to the guys in iraq or afghan

can you give any advice on how to approach the companies with regards to work cvs sent all the time with a few standard replies (thanks for the cv) or is it better to phone and ask about work ,seems to be a lot of feedback that n ireland service doesnt count totally lost on how to approach it!!

I'm having the same problems.

Any hints about getting a foot in the door?

Guys not sure if you have had any joy with work, but Aegis, Olive, Gardaworld and G4S/Armour Group are employing at the minute.

Good luck
