We have launched a short film that showcases our services for employers.
The video promotes the message that ‘Military is Good for Business’, and explains how the OA can help employers benefit from recruiting veterans.
Recruiting former officers benefits employers, according to a report compiled by Deloitte, with contributions from the Officers’ Association and Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT). 72% of organisations with active ex-military recruitment programmes said they would definitely recommend employing veterans. 80% said they understood how military skills matched their organisation’s needs. Veterans were considered particularly strong at communication, leadership, problem solving, planning, time management and team-work. These are areas that around a third of organisations surveyed said they had a skill shortage.
We can connect employers with military talent. Employers and recruiters are able to post job opportunities on our Executive Jobs Board. The OA works with organisations to develop programmes that attract, recruit and develop ex-military candidates. We also run networking events, share best practice and undertake employer led research.
