Meet Our Partners
Established in 1920, the Officers’ Association exists to help officers as they transition from a military to a civilian career. The aim of any career transition is to achieve a fulfilling and sustainable career; one that takes into account individual circumstances, aspirations and skills. We help to make this happen. We champion the skills and qualities of the officer job seeker and provide evidence based research in support of our work. Last year we worked with over 4,700 officers from across the Armed Forces as they moved into civilian employment.
