OA insight provides online knowledge for Officers from the point that they start planning for life beyond the Services.
We aim to help answer your questions on transition - based on our shared experiences - and guide you in your future plans.
We help take the confusion out of deciding on your next career options with a self-analysis tool that evaluates your strengths and skills.
Our resource provides information on company sectors, company intelligence and employer insights.
There are links to our archived webinars, transition stories and downloadable fact sheets.
Coming soon: we will be providing information on company sectors, company intelligence and employer insights. We have also launched an annual salary survey.
Whether you are still serving or a former officer wishing to change career in later life, we aim to support you as much as possible in your transition.
