AFF’s Employment & Training Specialist, Lucy Ritchie and AFF’s Forces Families Jobs (FFJ) Administrator, Sarah Johnson recently attended the Career Change and Apprenticeship Expo, organised by the Forces Employment Charity.
The fair’s focus was on career change and apprenticeships for the military community, specifically veterans, military spouses/partners and young people. The event brought together a range of employers and employment support organisations from around the UK to talk about the opportunities that are available.
Lucy and Sarah were there to promote the benefits that FFJ has to offer the military family community. Lucy said, “We really enjoyed meeting spouses and school leavers, and talking to them about employment and apprenticeship opportunities.”
Jenna Richardson, Armed Forces Employer’s Liaison at the Forces Employment Charity said: “It was great to have Forces Families Jobs represented. As FFJ is the one-stop-shop for spouses/partners and adult children to find careers and training opportunities, it was a brilliant opportunity to showcase them to both the community and local employers. Events like this really do foster a collaborative environment to encourage more joined-up working, which benefits the military community immeasurably.”
