You can find help guidance on the CTP website about how to approach the job market. Their Employment Engagement Team works to find appropriate vacancies for veterans and also promotes the benefits of recruiting ex-military personnel to employers. You can find out more here.

Most jobs will require you to complete an application form or to submit a covering letter and CV. CTP offer training to help you write your CV. The most important thing when applying for a job is to tailor your application or CV/letter to the job you are applying for.

In terms of searching and applying for jobs you will find helpful guidance on the Prospects website.

You can also contact your local Jobcentre for help finding work.

Organisations/charities who can provide help and support:

The Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

Businesses, charitable and public sector organisations of all sizes who wish to support the armed forces community can sign the covenant. To do so they must have made a pledge setting out how they will offer support for example by participating in military charity events or by supporting employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces.

Before you apply for a job it is worth checking whether the company you are applying has signed up to the covenant.

You can find details for business who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant here.
