What is it?
  • The virtual careers fair is a collaboration between the Officers’ Association and SaluteMyJob.

  • This is a new innovation – the OA  Virtual Career Fair is a dynamic and proactive way to break down barriers and introduce candidates with strong skill sets directly to potential employers who are looking to fill positions.

  • The virtual careers platform will provide a low cost (it’s free!)  way for possible job candidates to meet prospective employers and for employers to meet candidates in a rich multi-modal environment. Candidates will be able to use chat, engage with webinars and network with peers and possible employers, and employers to better connect with candidates.

  • If you are job seeking, seeking further information or simply networking, you will have an opportunity to meet our partners and have access to career-focused resources.

  • As an employer, the Fair represents a unique opportunity to meet 300 + Service men and women seeking management roles – across Project, Facilities, Risk and Operational Management and consultancy and meet corporate covenant business objectives.

  • The event will take place on June 6th and 7th 2017

“We live in exciting times.  Technology can now be leveraged to expand an employers reach and connect with high-calibre candidates, without the time or geographical constraints of a traditional fair format.  We are delighted to be hosting this unique event which will enable employers to showcase their opportunities and tap into a truly diverse ex-military talent pool”, Liz Stevens, Head of Employment Services,  OA.
