Businesses and veterans come together at specialist fair

EMPLOYERS will have the chance to meet highly-trained and motivated veterans at a specially organised event next month.

The employment fairs, organised by the government’s Career Transition Partnership, enable businesses to find out about the skills and experience service leavers can offer to their organisations, whether they are promoting current vacancies or collecting CVs for a future talent pipeline.

The fairs offer an opportunity for employers to showcase their organisation and the vacancies on offer as well as collecting CVs from potential employees. They can also represent a significant saving on recruitment costs as no fee is made for any successful placements.

The next CTP employment fair will be held at the International Centre, Telford, on 9 November.
