RFEA is pleased to partner with the Government’s See Potential campaign, focused on their Employing Military Veterans event this month which was introduced by Caroline Dineage, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Work and Pensions.
See Potential aims to help businesses fill skills gaps and diversify workforces by hiring people from disadvantaged groups including some military veterans. Sir Richard Branson, Deborah Meaden and Simon Cowell are See Potential ambassadors.
The Employing Military Veterans event was targeted at employers who do not currently recruit ex forces and showcased some of the employers who work closely with RFEA, demonstrating the value that they place on military experience within their workforce and how they operate their ex military recruitment.Read more
The aim of the event is to provide ex-servicemen and women with access to job opportunities, work experience, training and volunteering. The day will provide the opportunity to network with many distinguished organisations such as Barclays UK, XPO Logistics and FDM Group amongst others. It will also provide useful links to organisations that provide veteran support in the wider community.Read more
