"While working at MPCT I’ve found that I’ve enjoyed working with young adults and seeing them develop and achieve their goals that they may have thought were not achievable. Since being here I’ve seen the learners leadership qualities grow with their confidence helping them to progress into any job role they may be working towards."Bonnie Simeon
James served in the infantry for 10 years in the 1st Battalion The Grenadier Guards from 2003 tp February 2013. During his time in the infantry, James completed a tour of Bosnia in 2004/2005 a tour of Iraq in 2006 and then 3 tours of Afghanistan in 2007/2009/2012.
In between all the tours, when back in the UK, James would be doing numerous ceremonial duties which included 3 trooping of the colours.
Back in 2013, James counted his lucky stars to be alive and chose to leave. This was a big wake up call as he had been drilled with military for the last 10 years of his life and knew nothing else. James then decided to follow his dreams and passion of fitness, and qualified as a level 3 personal trainer in 2016. Since then he has worked in a number of gyms and trained many many clients over the years.
One of James's biggest passions is boxing. He trained the company boxing team and then when he left the army he went and fought in a few amateur fights local to himself.
Being able to work for MPCT is a honour for James as the job role is something he has wanted to do ever since he left the army. Being able to share his experiences and knowledge with the younger generation and give them that boost, encouragement, and drive to better themselves has always been a passion for James.
