Career fairs bring employers and ex-forces jobseekers together

ORGANISATIONS looking to take their pick from the growing pool of ex-forces talent are being invited to attend specially organised careers fairs around the UK.

The events, organised by the British Forces Resettlement Service, bring together service leavers looking for work and employers who recognise the potential and unique skill-sets of military veterans.

They also allow employers to meet potential candidates at the beginning of the recruitment process and to promote their business to military veterans.

The next National Employment and Careers Fair is being held in Aldershot on Thursday, January 25. Events are planned for later in the year in Catterick, Colchester, Stafford and Tidworth.

Companies looking to hire service leavers can also take advantage of a series of online services offered by BFRS including advertising jobs and courses to the Armed Forces community.
