BFRS have put together their Top 10 reasons to employ the Armed Forces. We will be sharing some valuable tips and hints on how to personally develop yourself to secure your dream job.

Reason 1 & 2

Leadership & Team Player​:

The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction, motivation and inspiration. Ex-military personnel know that taking risks, stepping outside their comfort zones, and coming up with creative ideas is what it’ll take to be a great team player. Taking on more responsibilities and extra initiative benefits the team.

Reason 3 & 4

Honesty & Good Communication​:

Being honest in the military increases trust, builds reputations, promotes loyalty and ensures quick dispute resolution. Honesty is one of the most desirable virtues in the Armed Forces Community.

The ability to communicate information accurately, clearly and as intended, it is vital to life in the forces. Just as importantly, most are active listeners, which means they pay close attention to what the other person is saying.

Reason 5

Problem Solving:

It’s true that people from the military are natural problem solvers! From the first day of training Military Personnel are put into situations where they are required to lead and solve problems from day one.

Reason 6

Transferable Skills

Within the military, service personnel develop a range of skills. Once these skills are spotted they can be transferred into civilian life and into new employment.

Reason 7

Cope Under Pressure:

Being a service personnel you would have experienced a number of times being put under pressure, however you learn to stay calm and push yourself through the difficult situations.

Reason 8

Emotional Intelligence

Military Personnel have the ability to be aware of, control and express their emotion. They can recognise and manage their emotions and the emotions of others. Emotional Intelligence is the key to both personal and professional success.

Reason 9

Social Maturity:

One of humanity’s most useful skills, without which advanced civilizations would not exist, is being able to engage our higher cognitive functions, our self-control, to resist these temptations.

 Reason 10

Calmness in the Face of Adversity:

Staying calm when all the odds are against you, remain cool, remain cautious, remain level-headed under conditions likely to be problematic whilst constructing a plan to overcome the adversity, whether it takes a minute or a week. It can be physically and mentally draining, it will show an abundance of character to climb the wall and should motivate you to carry on climbing.
