Bringing Military Talent to Industry – OnBoarding Officers Partners with BFRS
OnBoarding Officers is proud to announce its newest partnership with British Forces Resettlement Services (BFRS).
As a Social Enterprise, BFRS provide services to tackle social problems, improve Armed Forces Communities and people’s life chances. Key to this is knowing that military resettlement is more than just the brief time when leaving the services, and that it isn’t just personnel from the regular forces who are affected. Therefore, all the services BFRS deliver are open to Service Leavers, Reserve Forces, Veterans, civilian MOD employees, as well as partners and families, and it doesn’t matter how long or how long-ago people served.
BFRS National Employment & Careers Fair, returns to Stafford on the 2nd May 2019
BAE Systems Saudi Arabia are Headline Sponsors, Marston Holdings as Bag Sponsors and over 60 companies such as Jaguar Land Rover Retail, Civil Nuclear Constabulary and ALDI will be exhibiting at the event, with one thing in common… to gain access to some of the UKs best talent.
The companies who exhibit at the BFRS National Employment & Career Fairs have regional, national and overseas opportunities. Thousands of opportunities will be available at the event in Stafford on the 2nd May, their commitment to support and invest and create a positive future for those who have served our country is key.
Neil Dean, Managing Director of BFRS said:
“Many of the employers who exhibit with BFRS, recognise the wealth of experience and valuable skill sets that ex-military personnel have. We are seeing more and more companies sign up to our National Employment & Careers Fairs, exhibitors at Stafford include; BAE Systems Saudi Arabia (Headline Sponsor), Marston Holdings (Bag Sponsor), Nuco Training, M&E Global Resources, Farmfoods, Chevron Traffic Management.”
BFRS events bring companies and the Armed Forces Community (AFC) together, it is crucial for us to showcase the skills the AFC have to offer to Civvy Street, it is also important to us that companies recognise the benefits from employing Service Leavers and Veterans.
Sian Richardson, Forces CV Services, writes:
“For the last 7 years, I have given CV and careers advice to attendees at the BFRS National Careers Events around the UK. During that time, I have watched the BFRS team grow and excel, whilst delivering first class service to the Armed Forces Community. No-one can fault their professionalism and passion for helping ex-military personnel and their families to connect with employers and make a smooth transition, either into a new career in civvy street or their next step on the career ladder. They truly understand the needs of the AFC. If you get the opportunity to attend one of these events, go. If you don’t, you’ll be missing out.”
By attending a BFRS career fair, you’ll have access to hundreds of professionals from a variety of industries eager to discuss current opportunities within their organisation. There will be thousands of jobs available within a plethora of sectors, come along with your colleagues, family or friends and get involved in our National Employment & Career Fair.
