Forces Families Jobs is fast becoming the place for military families to look for new opportunities and as of this week there are jobs available in every county in England, plus vacancies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The list of big names and gold Employer Recognition Scheme award holders who are now advertising jobs is growing all the time and 60 gold employers are now registered.
Well-known companies posting jobs all over the country include Amazon, Compass, Kier, Babcock, BAE Systems and Manpower.
Training providers are also full of praise for the online platform for spouses, partners and family members of serving and Reserve military personnel across all three services, which launched in September.
Martin Wing, of XForces Enterprise, said: “I think the website is great to get the message out there about the training that’s actually available to people who are in the armed forces community.”
Training providers who are offering free or discounted courses specifically for armed forces families can sign up.
Jodie Peach, of the Royal Artillery Centre for Personal Development, said: “I think it is so beneficial to family members and I have heard lots of people referring to it. It is such a useful tool for them and a great idea of yours.”
