New employment platform for military spouses
The three families federations are thick into the planning phase towards the new employment and training platform which will be known as Forces Families Jobs. The tri-service platform, which will promote businesses and organisations who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant, will launch in September.
A total of 48 companies have signed up so far. If your organisation has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, you are now able to download the Employers form, complete and send back to [email protected] as this part of the project is now live.
Not yet signed the Armed Forces Covenant?
By becoming a forces friendly employer you can benefit from the wide range of unique skills and experiences that reservists and veterans can bring to your organisation. Employing armed forces community members can help diversify the talent in your workforce. Find out more about being a forces friendly employer.
This project has arisen as a direct result of the AFF research, ‘Military spousal/partner employment: identifying the barriers and support required’, published in June 2018 which states a key recommendation as the introduction of an online jobs platform.
