Women into Employment Exploring the opportunities and challenges for ex-military personnel & spouses - 10 March

WOMEN INTO EMPLOYMENT 

Exploring the opportunities and challenges for ex-military personnel and spouses. 
Join us to understand why women have a lower employment rate (69%) compared to men (81%) after leaving the Armed Forces? 
Hear from business leaders, employment experts and inspirational women who have successfully transitioned from military to civilian employment. Understand what employers like Jacobs, JP Morgan and the MOD Abbey Wood are looking for from future employees and why they’re recruiting from the ex-military and spouse talent pools. 
A series of keynote presentations and panel discussions will discuss the key issues and opportunities facing women as they seek to swap military life for civilian employment tackling: 
The struggle to describe skills and experiences in a way that employers understand 
Holding back from applying for roles if they do not 100% fit the criteria and a lack of confidence 
Family commitments 
Unsure where they best fit in industry 

National employers will showcase their current opportunities and provide recruitment and job application advice. 

This is your chance to build your online network of supportive employers, contacts and industry champions: enabling you to find a sustainable and fulfilling next role.
