Throughout the day, you will be able to interact with fellow Service leavers, former officers, employers, and recruiters to build your professional network and make valuable connections.

Succeed.
By the end of this event, you will be more aware of the opportunities available and the best fit for you and your second career, leaving with a budding network and clear next steps.

“The OA [Officers’ Careers Forum] gave me a better understanding of the variety of roles and career paths available to service leavers. It also gave me a tremendous understanding of the key transferable skills between the military and civilian employment and how best to leverage those skills when talking to potential employers.”
– London 2017 delegate.

Serving and former officers: This one-day event will equip you with the latest advice and knowledge you need to approach your transition and/or continue your second career with confidence.
