Join us at the CTP Wales Employment Fair

Category: Recruitment

Join us at the CTP Wales Employment Fair At Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) we recognise the wealth of valuable and transferable skills Service leavers possess. We believe that the time you’ve spent in the military developing this knowledge and experience can help us deliver the best possible service to front-line personnel, as we work towards equipping, supporting and protecting the UK Armed Forces.

We’re proud to work closely with CTP to support Service leavers through their transition into civilian life, and all of our Level 1-5 vacancies are advertised on the CTP’s online job portal, RightJob. Thanks to the cross-government ‘Great Place to Work for Veterans’ initiative, as long as you meet the minimum eligibility criteria for a DE&S role, your application will be progressed straight to interview.

We’re looking forward to attending the CTP Wales Employment Fair in November 2022, and we’d love for you to come and speak to us while you’re there. It takes a variety of people across multiple specialisms to help us achieve our goals, from Engineers to Project Managers, Integrated Logistics specialists to HR professionals. So whatever your skillset or background, we’re sure you’ll find a rewarding civilian role with us where you can utilise your skills to support those still serving in the Armed Forces. On the day, you’ll have the chance to meet some of our ex-military colleagues and learn how we can help you achieve the things you want in the next stage of your career – whether that’s a great work-life balance or ongoing training and development opportunities.

Benefits of joining us:

  • Flexible working
  • 25 days of holiday (plus one additional day every year you work up to 30 days)
  • Up to 15 days paid special leave per year for reservist training
  • Employer pension contribution of around 27%
  • Financial support for professional qualifications and training
  • Annual performance-based bonuses
  • An extra bank holiday for the Queen’s birthday

What’s more, if you join us at DE&S having completed five years of military service without a break in service of longer than five years, your military leave allowance will be preserved and you’ll be awarded 30 days of leave.
If you’ve found a role with us that you think would be perfect for you, we’ve written some hints and tips on how to write a great CV to help you with your application. Remember to tailor your CV specifically to the job you’re applying for, avoid military jargon and acronyms to ensure we can fully understand your achievements, and most importantly, proofread it before submitting.
