Job Seeking Assistance For All Ex Service Personnel

Press Release.


The Regular Forces Employment Association is launching an employment service

for; those people leaving or have left the Armed Forces who are/were not entitled to the Ministry Of

Defence (MOD)- Resettlement, service delivered by the Career Transition


The RFEA was established as a charity in 1885 to help ex-Service

personnel gain rewarding and sustainable civilian employment; providing job-finding

services throughout the UK and in Germany. In 1998 we the RFEA became a sub-

contractor to Right Management, the MOD prime contractor in the delivery of

resettlement services to those leaving the Armed Forces after serving for 4 or more


The new service assists those who have been in the military for less than 4 years, or

have served for longer but have been discharged early, or are Reservists who have

completed at least one operational tour. The former two categories of Service

Leavers are termed collectively by the MOD as Early Service Leavers (ESL).

Funded by generous donations from the ex-Service benevolent funds, principally the

Army Benevolent Fund; and by a grant for IT resources from the Veterans Challenge

Fund; our work for these people has been developed by two, Specialist Employment

Consultants (SEC) based in the North and the Midlands.

Using bespoke customer relationship management tools developed by the RFEA,

the SEC are able to provide a comprehensive service ranging from signposting to

appropriate agencies up to a full job-finding service including advice & guidance, CV

development, access to training opportunities, job-matching and access to

customised job-boards. Supporting services are provided by our network of 25

Employment Consultants across the UK and Germany who provide employment

services to personnel entitled to MOD support within the Career Transition

Partnership and to those entitled personnel who have been out of the military for

more than 2 years. For more information and access to this new service contact:
