Stewart Golf joins forces with veterans’ charity

On Course Foundation member Rob Hansen employed by trolley manufacturer.
 

A former veteran is getting to grips with his new role after securing employment with a leading golf trolley manufacturer, thanks to the On Course Foundation.

Rob Hansen has been taken on as part of the build team at Stewart Golf, which has become the latest in a growing number of organisations to join forces with the charity.

Hansen served with the Royal Corps of Signals from June 1996 until June 2013, when he was medically discharged following a severe knee injury.

He said: “When I discovered the On Course Foundation in 2013, I had completely dismissed the idea of ever playing golf again, let alone finding a new career in the industry. I knew I wanted to continue in a more technical or engineering role so the On Course Foundation arranged for me to have an interview with Stewart Golf. This job is perfect for me as I can do it within my limitations and gain experience at the same time.”

‘Rob was perfect for the role we had available’
The On Course Foundation aims to create a pool of organisations in the golf industry that it can approach when a member is interested in pursuing a career in a particular field.

Stewart Golf managing director Mark Stewart said: “Ex-servicemen and women often find it hard to transition into civilian life, but their skill set and work ethic is exceptional. Rob was perfect for the role we had available and I would definitely encourage more businesses to support the work that the On Course Foundation does.”
