New year, new job?
Forces Families Jobs (FFJs) has over 3,500 jobs now available to search and apply for. If you are a military family member, (partner, son or daughter aged 18-25) or in your first year of transitioning out of the RAF then FFJs can help!
The RAF Families Federation formally partnered with the Naval and Army Families Federations to launch ‘Forces Families Jobs’ in September 2019. This ground breaking website, which is completely free to use, links leading employers who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and wish to support forces families by offering flexible jobs, to military family members who are looking for work. This can be a challenge for family members due to the mobile nature of their lifestyle.
There are over 3,500 jobs now advertised from world leading employers including Microsoft, Morrisons, the Scottish Government and a vast range of small and medium sized businesses. This project was supported by Defence Relationship Management, and co-funded by a range of supporters, including the RAF Association.
Jobs are added daily and so if you don’t immediately see what you are looking for then it may be worth registering to receive alerts for the right role, when it comes along.
If looking for a job isn’t for you but training is then we have 32 organisations offering free, if not discounted courses specifically for military families.
You will find information about training courses, business start-up programmes, funding, career events, insight days and discounted training.
