Please be aware that an Armed Forces Employment Fair, sponsored by Hampshire County Council (HCC) and supported by Rushmoor Borough Council is to be held at the Farnborough International Venue & Events, better known as FIVE on Monday 14 March 2011 between 1000 – 1600 hrs.

All members of the armed services: Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force, Veterans, Reservists or members of their families who will shortly leave the services, or are looking for work will be welcomed by prospective employers eager to learn of the transferable skills sets, training and unique experience that come with having served in Britain’s Armed Forces.

It is anticipated that there will be upwards of 750 military personnel attending who are about to leave the services; coupled with scores of veterans and members of serving families the total figure of job seekers attending will soar to well over a thousand.

The event, which is being viewed as a significant Partnership/Community Engagement enterprise, will see some 100 businesses assisting Service Leavers, their dependents, Veteran’s and Reservists in finding suitable and lasting employment.

The aim of the Hampshire Economic Military Partnership is to support the economic prosperity of service personnel, their dependants, veterans and reservists, with a specific interest in the future employment of service personnel.
