Request for help from 50+ Service leavers (other ranks only)

The Officers’ Association (OA) is currently conducting a research project on the employment barriers and challenges to older Service leavers for which we are running group discussions in different parts of the UK. The aim of the discussions is to learn about the experiences of ex-Service personnel who made their transition into civilian work at the age of 50+.

We are currently recruiting participants for one of these focus groups.

If you  left the Armed Forces at the of age of 50+ with other rank (different from officer), the OA would like to hear your story. If you are not eligible to take part, it would help us if you could forward  this to someone who is.

The  session will last 1 hour and will include a complimentary breakfast. We will also pay reasonable travel expenses. All attendees will have the chance to participate in a free draw for a “thank you” gift.

The session will be held on Wed 26 September 2018 (0930-1030) at Mountbarrow House, London.

Please, reserve your place by following the link:

The group discussion is being run by the Officers’ Association, in partnership with Forces in Mind Trust (FIMT) and The Centre for Research into the Older Workforce (CROW).

For the group discussion to be a success we need between 6 and 10 people to take part.

We very much hope you can attend and look forward to hearing your story.
