We support Service leavers

The partnership between the Forces Employment Charity and the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is built on the shared belief that every Service leaver is entitled to support. Regardless of time served, all members of the Armed Forces can benefit from our unrivalled expertise and guidance when leaving the military.

The Forces Employment Charity stands by Service leavers through an unrivalled range of programmes and practical support. Working alongside CTP, we provide a range of practical tools and advice for gaining employment and facing the challenges that occur when transitioning into civilian life.

The skills and qualifications acquired during service are in demand and the employers we work with recognise the value that Service leavers can offer. All Service leavers can benefit from the free support provided by the Forces Employment Charity and CTP. We understand the challenges being faced and we are here to empower Service leavers to meet those challenges and take their next steps.

Through our CTP Assist Programme, wounded, injured and sick Service leavers are empowered to take their next steps through an individual and tailored service which includes in-depth support, access to job opportunities, additional signposting according to their specific needs and practical tools.

Early Service Leavers (ESLs) are ex-Forces personnel that have chosen to leave or have been discharged from the Armed Forces before completing an initial four years of service. No matter what their reason for leaving, working alongside CTP, the Forces Employment Charity provides unrivalled practical support through our CTP Future Horizons Programme, unlocking the next steps in their working life and more.
