RfS have seized the opportunity to further include military spouses in Scotland into their mission to push back the barriers facing them, championing their call for equal weighting in the employment stakes and giving cause for celebration within both the local business and military communities.
“Helping military spouses into work is our main objective and by opening an office in Helensburgh we are able to bring the opportunites and support that has proven so successful and beneficial to our wider community.” – Heledd Kendrick, CEO of RfS
Over the next year Recruit for Spouses will be making use of expert support to expand its services throughout Scotland by becoming more visible, creating more opportunities for military spouses, hosting career-based workshops and rolling out further nation-wide recruitment drives.
Ultimately, its aim is to bring to the country’s attention the wealth of talent that lies within these Scottish-based communities and bridge the gaps created by long standing discrimination.
