Resettlement support doesn’t end when you leave the Armed Forces.You can seek help if eligible from your Resettlement Centre for up to two years after your discharge date.
Career advice and guidance
If you attended a Career Transition Workshop or worked with a CTP Career Consultant on a one-to-one basis prior to leaving, you’re eligible for advice and information from your Career Consultant for up to two years post-discharge.
You can contact them by phone, email, or in person, whether it’s to discuss a job application, get feedback on your CV, or simply review your career direction.
You may also be able to attend CTP Employment Fairs or seminars, interview techniques workshops or other events, depending on availability of places.
If you didn’t access resettlement services prior to leaving, you may still be eligible for job finding assistance. To check your eligibility and find out more, contact your nearest Regional Resettlement Centre.
You may be able to access training courses delivered by the CTP at the Resettlement Training Centre (RTC), Aldershot and some Regional Resettlement Centres (RRC) on a standby/fill up basis depending on whether they are Contract Funded or Non-Contract Funded. JSP 534, paragraph 411 provides more details. Please click here for course information or contact the Course Booking & Information Centre to book your place on 02894 456 200.
Job Finding Support
If you are seeking a job within two years of being post-discharge, you will continue to have access to your Career Consultant, along with RightJob.
Job Finding Assistance For Life
Job finding assistance and access to RightJob is available through the RFEA Employment Compass Programme (ECP), a national employment support programme designed to address the employment needs of Veteran personnel who no longer qualify for MOD Resettlement support and are returning to the employment market after 2 years post discharge from service.
The RFEA’s aim is to assist Veterans to secure quality, sustainable employment for the rest of their working life. RFEA has an unparalleled understanding of the skills and ambitions that ex-forces/Veterans bring to the employment market. We also have a proven track record of helping all ranks, trades, backgrounds and services to find and remain in work. Indeed, in 2014 RFEA provided employment support to just over 4,000 Veterans UK wide. Click here for further information.

The Officers’ Association (OA) is a registered charity that provides professional, impartial and practical advice to serving, transitioning and former Officers on all aspects of transition and employment, which can supplement the CTP’s resettlement programme. This includes Career Consultants, networking events, employment symposiums and an executive jobs board. Click here
