The City Veterans’ Network (CVN) brings together veteran networks within firms across the City, and Financial Services in the UK, to share best practice on employing ex-Service personnel and reservists.
The Network provides a forum where issues impacting veterans & Service leavers can be debated in confidence, and where activities aimed at enhancing veteran activity in Financial Services are delivered. Examples of which include – transition events, charity knowledge, learning programmes and fundraising dinners.
Emma Couper and Kelly Mullane discuss the aims of the City Veterans’ Network and how it was established. They talk about the events they currently hold, how to get in touch with them, and provide ideas about their plans for the future of CVN.
Emma and Kelly also discuss their own transition from the military into the world of finance and illustrate why military networks are an invaluable addition to diversity and inclusion programmes within large corporations.
