Webinar Report Launch: Understanding Service Leavers Aged 50+ Their Challenges and Experiences in the Civilian Jobs Market

Service leavers aged 50+ are playing a critical role in helping Britain respond to the Coronavirus crisis, providing a rare glimpse of their skills on the ground. Witnessing the successful delivery of the NHS Nightingale hospital helped showcase to employers their value and core attributes.  Yet many older Service leavers struggle to use these very skills when they leave the military.

This timely and ground-breaking project investigates the experiences and attitudes of Service leavers aged 50+ as they transition from military to civilian employment.  It explores the challenges faced across all ranks and seeks to balance the findings from Service leavers with that of employers, highlighting examples of good practice being undertaken.


Funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) and delivered by the Centre for Older Workers (CROW) for the Officers’ Association (OA), the report lays bare the results of intensive interviews and workshops and delivers key recommendations.


Join us as we deliver and review key findings in this webinar broadcast:

  •  Discover why the research was needed
  • Understand the barriers and challenges to mid-career transitions
  • Find out what employers think of Service leavers aged 50+
  • Understand how 50+ Service leavers experiences differ from younger cohorts
  • Review our key findings and how they might relate to your own organisation
  • Opportunity to talk to the report authors 

All registrants will receive an online copy of the full report following the broadcast.
