At the Forces Employment Charity, we understand that finding long-term, sustainable, employment can be one of the hardest parts of adjusting to civilian life.
That is why we provide life-long support to help you find the career that works best for you. We also support with career progression, so if your current job is not the best fit for you, we can help you find your next role.
The Veterans Support Programme provides veterans with helpful career advice and job opportunities from employers who understand the true value of ex-military recruitment, as well as employment support grants for those that are unemployed or underemployed. Your grant can be used for training in a new profession and buying essential equipment.
Please note that not all employment support grants are guaranteed, and they will be subject to your application. Find out more about employment support grants.
On the Veterans Support Programme, our employment Advisors are regionally based, which allows them to provide a more personal support experience, including a unique understanding of the local job market. In addition to this, all our Advisors are mental health first aid trained and experienced in all things military.
All veterans are paired with an Advisor who will be their point of contact throughout their career journey. Our Advisors have invaluable employment and career advice, alongside a unique network of contacts and organisations that value the wealth of skills and experience that veterans have.
