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.
A HOST of companies and individuals have been recognised in an awards ceremony celebrating veterans’ successful transition into civilian life and the businesses which support them.
The BSI Resettlement Awards celebrate the achievements of service leavers who have successfully made the transition into civilian life and acknowledges the organisations who supported them during their journey.
VETERANS are being invited to attend free career transition workshops to help guide them into civilian employment.
BT regularly hosts Transition Force events – designed to help ex-military personnel gain valuable industry insights, extend their networks and show employers how their military experience will benefit their business.
In this month's newsletter we are focusing on how ex-service personnel can fill your health and safety skills gaps including what makes veterans so suitable to these types of roles and the relevant hard & soft skills needed.
