What does 2019 have in store for those leaving the Armed Forces?

Date: Wednesday January 9, 2019 at 3:37pm

With the beginning of yet another year comes a new set of plans, goals and opportunities for those leaving the Armed Forces Community (AFC). British Forces Resettlement Services (BFRS) events have been hard at work planning the ‘must attend’ events, as well as looking for the latest opportunities for AFC leavers in 2019.

At our Military to Civilian Events, BFRS offer the AFC the chance to meet employers, find jobs, access self-employment opportunities, enrol in training schemes and get in touch with a whole raft of support services specialising in the transition from Military to Civilian life.

Entrance to these events are free and each event includes a wide range of exhibitors from local and high-profile companies who actively seek to employ ex-Service personnel or offer self-employment franchise opportunities.​

National Employment and Career Fairs:​

At the BFRS events National Employment and Career Fairs we provide the AFC with a great opportunity to meet and network with employers.  As well as meeting with potential employers, the AFC will be able to find out about the different qualifications they may need and meet with potential training providers (ELC Approved Providers), to help them gain new qualifications that could assist them with employment.

Every year the BFRS events team host six Career Fairs in the UK, these events are based across the UK to ensure accessibility to everyone in the AFC. If you are a Service Leaver, Reserve Forces, Veteran, Partners & Families or a Civilian working for the MoD, the Careers Fair is aimed at you.
