Telegraph: "Tackling The Challenges Of Moving To Civvy Street"

#1
"Unemployment may be falling but the news won’t lift the morale of the 1,505 servicemen and women the Ministry of Defence has announced it is making redundant in the latest set of military job losses that began under a strategic review launched four years ago.

The cuts revealed last week will see a 1,425 soldiers, 10 medical officers from the Royal Navy and 70 medical personnel from the RAF go, on top of 4,500 servicemen who went in June as part of plans that will see the Army scaled down from 102,000 regular soldiers to 82,000.

While the MoD says it offers a “robust” resettlement process and “generous tax-free payment” for those selected for redundancy to smooth their move to civilian life, the transition can be trying and even confusing."
