Event description

Description



Deployment to Employment

This incredible event gives the opportunity for tranisitional members of the Armed Forces, Veterans, Reservists and Service Families to come and see what employment, training and reskilling opportunities there are available in 'civvy street'. There will be a number of organisations present who can offer you practical, relevant and current advice on securing employment; volunteering; finance and money management; health and wellbeing; housing and the welfare benefits system.

With a number of employment and training stands onsite, you will have the opportunity to speak with employers that recognise, and value the diverse range of skills you have acquired in your service career. During the day, there will be a rolling programme of workshops and coaching sessions given by Veterans, Employers and Career Coaches including advice on setting up your own business. Further details on exhibitors and the workshop programme will be sent to delegates before the 24th April.

For those who are looking at further training to change career direction, there will also be advice on how to make the most of your learning credits to access further training and take that first step to build a new future following your tranisition.
