Senior Non-Commissioned Officers and employment after leaving the UK Armed Forces

Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) has commissioned Warwick’s Institute for Employment Research (IER), along with QinetiQ and RFEA, the Forces Employment Charity, to examine the transition of Senior Non-Commissioned Officers (SNCOs) from all three Services into civilian employment (including full/part-time, self-employment, volunteering, or a combination of these).

Recent studies have highlighted that SNCOs face particular challenges transitioning to civilian employment due to lower educational attainment levels and a lack of confidence in translating military experience to civilian employers. This research will contribute to FiMT’s evidence base to understand this particular group’s unique transition challenges and will offer recommendations to influence relevant policy-making and service delivery.
