The easy way for employers and employees to meet

We organise Employment Fairs, Online Chat Events and Company Presentations across the UK and in Germany every year. They’re a great opportunity for Service leavers to network with potential employers and to find out about different sectors. As well as checking out the opportunities available to you, you’ll be able to find out what qualifications you need, identify any training needs and gain an insight into civilian employment.

Online event
These events enable you to learn about specific industries, employers or resettlement-related topics, all from the comfort of your own home or office. All you'll need is access to a computer (or tablet, for some events) with broadband. 

Simply follow the instructions to register and log in to the event at the allotted time. You won't be required to take a day's leave, as most events last for an hour, and can be attended during breaks or evenings.

Company presentation

Similar to Industry Awareness Days, these events take place in RRCs and tend to focus on one particular Company and is represented by members of their staff. 

The event would usually consist of a presentation about your company and any employment opportunities available.  Many organisations bring along staff who are ex-Forces so they can speak about their own experience of their transition into the civilian workplace.  This proves to be an excellent way to connect with the audience.

These events can be followed by a buffet lunch which some employers feel provides an excellent opportunity for their representatives to mingle and speak informally with Service leavers. Our staff at the hosting RRC will be very happy to organise this on your behalf so please discuss with them during the initial arrangements. They will be able to inform you of the costs of this additional service.

Depending on how you wish to run the presentation, informal interviews sometimes take place after lunch and if a potential candidate is identified, they can be invited to your company for a formal interview at a later date.

Information presentation
These events cover a range of topics including self employment and tax.
Employment fair

Typically held in external venues in major cities, these events are normally attended by between 50-80 different employers or employer organisations, dependant on the size of the venue.  

You can set up stands that Service leavers can visit throughout the event in order to ask questions about your organisation or industry.  This presents you the opportunity to provide information about your organisation and the employment opportunities available. 

We encourage Service leavers to bring copies of their CVs to these events so they can hand them out to employers and this has resulted in many successful placements.
