Military Insight Events are ideal for employers wanting to engage Ex-Military Personnel. Sophia Koniarska, OA Business Development Manager, recently ran a webinar on how to make them successful.
Why employ veterans?
Companies that employ Ex-Military Personnel have access to the third largest UK workforce, after Sales Assistants and Care Workers. 16,000 people leave the British Armed Forces every year, and in total there are 2.6 million.
Why run a Military Insight Event?
Military insight events are a great way for companies to demonstrate their leadership and commitment to the Armed Forces community and engage on a practical level with Service Leavers transitioning into Civilian employment.
According to research published by Deloitte in November 2016, in collaboration with Forces in Mind Trust and the OA, 75% of medium and large organisations are interested in recruiting veterans. However, only 39% of medium and large organisations would employ someone with no industry experience. This shows that, although most companies are keen to recruit veterans, they prefer candidates with relevant experience.
