Employment

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:
