Events

At our Military to Civilian Events, BFRS offer the Armed Forces Community 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 events is 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. It has been known for candidates to receive job interviews within a week of meeting an employer at one of our events. Click on an event title for more details.
