We've launched the second wave of our Military Transition Programme – a scheme dedicated to recruiting and supporting former Armed Forces personnel.
We'll be holding an Insight event at our Swindon headquarters on January 14. The event is focused on recruiting former Armed Forces personnel to project manager posts within our Society as part of our Military Transition Programme.
The event will provide potential candidates with information about working here as well as general recruitment advice and tips. Following the insight event, the next stage of the recruitment process is an assessment day which will take place on February 16.
The Military Transition Programme supports new recruits in their roles by providing extra training which takes into account the different skills they have acquired throughout their service as well as their varied experiences. Through a buddying system, new recruits are paired with existing ex-Armed Forces employees who have already made the transition from the military to professional careers with us.
The programme aims to attract people who are interested in project management posts within our Business Transformation department, which is responsible for major projects including implementing the latest technology within branches across the country and bringing new products to market.
“ The excellent skills former Armed Forces services personnel have acquired through their service and the investment the military has made in their development makes these individuals a real asset to us. ”
The Military Transition Programme is part of a wider work stream which is supporting the military community to recognise the challenges serving and former Armed Forces personnel and their families often face as a result of their military background. As well as the Military Transition programme, we have also been working with the military to give advice and information to first time buyers on purchasing their own home.
We're also working with military charities including the Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes and SSAFA to support various areas of the military community.
