Forces Families Jobs is an exciting new employment and training platform specifically designed to support service families into meaningful employment and provide opportunities for training and development.

It’s being delivered by a tri-Service partnership between the Naval Families Federation (NFF), Army Families Federation (AFF) and Royal Air Force Families Federation (RAF).

The aim of the project is to create a platform that bridges the gaps between spouses, partners and family members of current serving personnel, those organisations who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and those organisations who offer training and development opportunities. There is also access to careers information. ​

Who can use it?

  • Any organisation that has signed the Covenant can advertise their job opportunities free of charge.
  • Training providers who are offering training or career opportunities without charge and training companies who are offering a discount specifically for armed forces families.
  • Spouses, partners and family members of current regular and reserve personnel.  
  • Spouses, partners, and family members of service personnel who have left the armed forces within the last 12 months. 
  • Bereaved spouses, partners and family members for up to two years.​

Promoting the Covenant ​

For employers to be able to advertise on the site, they will have to be Armed Forces Covenant signatories.

The advantage of this is that partners, spouses and family members can be reassured that the employers are aware of the challenges presented by the military lifestyle, won’t discriminate against them because of this and are committed to supporting this community.

About the site

The site has been designed to be easy to use and it’s mobile friendly.

Jobseekers can register to create an account, upload or build a CV, create job alerts and search for jobs.  

The site will go live on 17 September 2019 at www.forcesfamiliesjobs.co.uk
