On Thursday 15th October, BFRS are hosting a Careers Event at the Catterick Leisure Centre, Catterick Garrison, British Forces Resettlement Services (BFRS) is a Social Enterprise focused on helping the Armed Forces Community through their transition to civilian life and beyond.
Over the current year, Catterick Garrison has had over 2480 service personnel moving bases from Swanton Morley, Cyprus and Germany, and of those relocating, 700 are expected to be families.
The Catterick careers event timing couldn’t be more perfect, it’ll serve as a great opportunity to support service personnel and their family’s transition, plus provide opportunities to those partners seeking new careers regionally whilst their husband/wife or partner continue their military careers.
BFRS also have a personal understanding that those who have served in the armed forces are not all about the bullets and the guns. We know that they manage procurement and budgets, deliver HR functions for hundreds of people from a very diverse background, manage equipment and expenditure, plus have industry trades, which civilian companies are crying out for!
We know that by bringing the commercial world and the Armed Forces Community together at these events, great opportunities and future careers are found. These also provide a great avenue to network with the large number of ex-military that are manning the stands.
The event is aimed at Service Leavers, the Reserve Forces, Veterans, MOD employees, and as mentioned their partners and families. This is an opportunity for those attending to meet national and regional employers, training providers and support services and discuss their transition or next career move in person. Hundreds of delegates are expected to attend on the day, and employers exhibiting include Amazon UK, MOD Police, Reed Specialist Recruitment and Go North East.
Date: Thursday 15th October 2015
Time: 09:30 to 14:00
Location: Catterick Leisure Centre, Gough Road, Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire DL9 3EL
Free entry for attendees. The event is welcome to the whole of the Armed Forces Community including Service Leavers, Reserve Forces, Veterans, civilians who work for the MOD as well as spouses and family members.
