Thousands of veterans are celebrating securing meaningful employment in civilian roles, thanks to the Ex-Forces Programme, delivered by RFEA, The Forces Employment Charity.
Ex-Forces are one of the largest sources of talented potential employees in the country. Service leavers and veterans are highly trained and skilled individuals who have worked within a motivated culture with exceptionally strong teamwork. RFEA work with 20,000 service leavers and veterans every year, supporting employers to recruit when they need high volumes of people to join their organisation.
The unique Ex-Forces Programme, which recently received a significant boost from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, of £267,000, is available to all service leavers, reservists and veterans, irrespective of circumstances, rank, length of service or reason for leaving. It offers regionally based, comprehensive career advice and job opportunities.
