Want to find out more about what other employers are doing with their Armed Forces recruitment programmes?

Around 3,500 employers have now pledged their support to the Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. Do you want to find out more about what other employers are doing to deliver their pledges? Or is your company considering signing the Covenant and want to understand the benefits and how other companies promote themselves as ‘Armed Forces friendly’ organisations, implement their programmes and measure success?

If so, SMJ Consulting Services is hosting a special event for employers ahead of this year’s British Ex-Forces in Business awards on 8th May. You are invited to attend this event, either to speak about your existing programme or listen to the good practice of others. Please indicate on the Eventbrite link, if you are willing to speak briefly (no more than 5 mins) on any of the following 3 subjects:

  • What is an Armed Forces friendly employer and what can it do?

  • What does a successful Armed Forces programme look like and how do you measure it?

  • What lessons have you learned from other employer-led, collaborative projects?

This is a fantastic chance to hear about the good practice of other employers and discuss how we can collaborate to maximise the benefits to employers, veterans and reservists alike.

Thanks to the generosity of the British Ex-Forces in Business Awards and Hilton Hotels, the cost to attend is only £100 per person. Space is limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. So book now to join other employers in a stimulating discussion in the comfort of one of London’s landmark hotels.

If you would like to find out more about the event, please contact Andrew Jackson - andrew@salutemyjob.com

WHEN: 8 MAY 2019

WHAT TIME: 10.30am - 3.30pm (lunch and refreshments included)

The fee for the day will cover food & beverages for the day and function facilities provided by Hilton Hotels or their contractors.

These services are funded in part by grants from the Service benevolent funds and the Scottish Veterans' Fund.

SaluteMyJob Newsletter: September 2018

In our September newsletter we look at the onboarding process and how you as an employer can make an ex-military employee's first 100 days a success. We also ask the question: are businesses missing a trick by not running a veterans’ training programme alongside their graduate or apprenticeship programmes and thereby helping bridge the gap between military life and the civilian workplace?
