  • VETS- are a great service made up of a number of employer partners. They run events, offer advice and provide a mentoring service. They are in the process of expanding their service to support military partners and spouses.
  • Career Transition Partnership - provides resettlement careers support services for those leaving the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and Marines, regardless of time served.
  • CTP- recently launched their Partner Career Support Programme, which again provides indivudalised careers support for partners and spouses of those in the military. The CTP website in general has some fantastic resources such as sector guides and CV writing tools, specifically aimed at those serving and veterans but could still be very useful for families.
  • Forces Families Jobs - offer training and employment for family members of currently serving UK military personnel.  
  • RFEA- a charity who support veterans and their families to find employment opportunities. A lot of other orgnaisations refer to this service. They have a dedicated families programme, whereby the individual is assigned an advisor to help and support their career journey.
