Military service ‘improves jobseekers’ chances of finding work’ says a new report


A major new study released today (29th November 2018) by the Veterans Work consortium, reveals that military service is likely to improve your chances of finding employment.

The study found that, contrary to what many believe, veteran employment rates at 81% are far higher than the national average of 75.5%.

The report, titled ‘Veterans Work: Moving On’, surveyed 1,786 UK veterans who had transitioned out of the military in the past 10 years.

Veterans Work, made-up of leading professional services firm Deloitte, the Armed Forces charity the Officers’ Association and The Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), is a consortium of organisations whose collective aim is to improve the understanding of veteran employment.

The Evening Standard has also written an excellent press release.
