The OA are to attend the Tidworth Job Fair on 15th March 2017 and will host a dedicated break-out seminar on transferable skill sets and preparation processes aimed at helping Service Leavers transition into industry.
Open to all ranks, The Service Leaver’s Journey break-out session will run from 10.30 – 11.15 on the day and bring together a panel of ex-military speakers who will share their own experiences and advice with participants.
“The Officers’ Association encourages Service Leavers to start gathering knowledge and insight about the transition process as early as possible. A really great way to do this is to learn from others who have been through a similar process and both the Job Fair and OA break-out sessions give ample opportunity to do this”, says Sophie Koniarska, OA Regional Business Development Manager.
Headquarters South West will run the Job Fair in Tidworth Garrison Theatre on Wednesday 15 March 2017. Over 45 regional and national employers will be in attendance, as well as recruitment agencies who are specifically looking to recruit Service Leavers, Veterans and Spouses. A wide variety of industry sectors will be represented, including (but not exclusively) healthcare, construction, transport, communications, tourism & leisure, manufacturing, biosciences & pharmaceutical, finance and defence.
During the day a series of presentations/seminars will be delivered by outside experts on the following topics:
- The Service Leaver’s Journey – from a Service Leaver who has successfully made the transition to gainful & worthwhile employment.
- CTP – what resettlement services are provided for Service Leavers.
