Probably the biggest challenge when leaving the Services will be finding a job. This section will never have a totally comprehensive selection of job sites, but we have tried to provide a selection of options as a start point. In addition, the Department of Work and Pensions has nominated a number of Employment Champions who maintain Jobcentre Plus’ commitment to support the Armed Forces, their Families and Veterans, and raise the profile of the support available through Jobcentre Plus. Further information on how to contact Jobcentre Plus can be found on the link below:

How to contact Jobcentre Plus
You can contact Jobcentre Plus about:
Whilst I appreciate that we are a general
national job board, our search software is designed for anyone looking for a
job; so whilst we do not specialise in a certain area of the job market, our
search software is programmed to search every job category. For instance,
a Veteran with specialist experience in mechanical engineering wanting to use
his skills in a commercial setting for a defence contractor would simply insert
“defence” in the “find a job box” and can leave the area blank for a national
search or insert a specific geographic area in the location box. The
search can be refined to mechanical engineer, defence, or simply mechanical
engineer; it just depends on the job seekers skills and how he/she intends
