Military Recruitment Scheme

Struggling to recruit and build that dream team?

Many of our members have flagged critical skills shortages as a serious barrier to continued business performance and growth. And we have listened!

Over the past months, we have been working behind the scenes collaborating and fostering relationships to facilitate significant opportunities on behalf of our members. 

In response to our efforts, we are excited to introduce you to the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) and the Forces Employment Charity (FEC) to help you recruit from an ‘army’ of disciplined, highly motivated and ready-to-work service leavers and veterans (there are some 14,000 service leavers each year).
