This summer, we’re focusing on your career. The mobile nature of military life means that your career may not follow a linear path, which could mean gaps in your CV, the need to job-hunt at each new posting and missing out on career progression and promotion opportunities.
This month, we’ll be looking at becoming your own boss, apprenticeships and options when you can’t work, such as volunteering.
In August, we’ll be looking at money matters, including pensions, National Insurance credits and maternity pay.
In September, we’d like to find out what you need in terms of childcare support and how you cope with school holiday childcare.
We’ll also be looking at when you can retain your quarter for your career and whether you can work from your SFA.
If you’re looking for careers and training support, visit Forces Families Jobs, which has established itself as a key employment and training site for military families, providing free access to more than 10,000 vacancies and a wealth of training opportunities.
