COMPANIES looking to capitalise on the pool of ex-military talent available to them can make the most of the opportunity by ensuring both sides are speaking the same business language.
While service leavers are encouraged to translate the skills they have learned in the military into those companies can understand, businesses can get a head start by training their recruiters to interpret military experience, or even hiring experienced recruiters from military backgrounds.
SaluteMyJob have put together a list of all employers who have been awarded gold by the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS). ERS gives out bronze, silver and gold awards for employers and organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to the Armed Forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to support those who serve or who have served, and their families. This document outlines guidance notes and best practice to organisations who are signing or have signed the Armed Forces Covenant on turning their intent into action.
