The mobile nature of Army life can make employment for spouses and partners challenging. Distance from family who can assist with childcare and the uncertainty of posting locations are just two of the hurdles which make it difficult to maintain employment. In this edition, we explore these and other challenges, and hear from family members about their experiences. For some, working for themselves was the answer and we chat to spouses who have set up their own businesses.
We also look at military partner employment experiences while on overseas postings, as well as answering your questions about holiday childcare.
If you’re looking to take a new path in your career, we focus on careers in the cyber and technology industry, plus we look at tips on writing covering letters and completing application forms.
We’ve also got lots of news and competitions on our pages for the younger members of your Army family, Dandelions. There’s the chance to win two months of online fitness coaching and tickets to the Baby Show at ExCel London, a postcard from Fiji and some great blogs from our readers, so there’s plenty to get stuck into in this winter edition.
