Meet Will Dixon
Trustee for Blesma since:
1 June 2013
Will was commissioned into the 3rd Battalion The Rifles in 2007 and served in Afghanistan in September 2009. Whilst on patrol his armoured vehicle struck a roadside bomb causing him severe injuries including a below the knee amputation.
Will left the Army and worked for Barclays managing a partnership between the Ministry of Defence and the bank to help fund and enable the re-training and re-employment of service personnel into the civilian workplace.
Following this initial placement Will rowed across the Atlantic with other wounded soldiers before taking up a permanent role in Barclays where he now works as Head of Product Performance in the Retail Bank.
