We know that finding suitable work after leaving the Armed Forces can be difficult and that transferring your military skills to civilian life is often a daunting prospect. We also recognise that it is hard to know where to turn for advice on finding work in Civvy Street. From training grants to workshops, our initiatives are designed to make your transition into a job outside the Armed Forces as smooth as possible.
