BFRS Career Event - Catterick

With the BFRS Catterick Career Event on the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] May fast approaching, I thought I would provide a few tips and guidance to get the best out of the day.

Our events are Career Fairs, meaning there is a whole raft of information and opportunities available, which include employment, training and other services for you to access. We advise to go with an open mind and explore everything that is there on the day, and gain the much needed knowledge to assist your transition or further development in Civilian Street.

Do not be put off for example, by a franchise, as you never know if you will go into self-employment, so ask them questions, find out how they went about starting their business, the benefits, the pitfalls, what tips they can provide you. If it’s a training provider, find out where their sector is going to be in 5 years, how could your skill-sets or expertise transfer to that sector now, or what training could you do in your resettlement that could assist moving into that sector, without using your ELC’s!

Employers should be planning month’s possible years in advance for their recruitment needs as well as seeking to recruit on the day, again this gives you the chance to prepare dependant on time left to serve or if you are seeking employment now. Find out about other departments in the organization if the individuals they are recruiting for do not match your background or skill-sets.

There is CV advice on the day, which is extremely beneficial, and that provision receives fantastic feedback.

Remember, you will have the chance to network with individuals that have already made that transition from Military to Civilian life, which includes the team from BFRS, so utilize what they have to offer.
