Starting your resettlement

Successful resettlement requires clear aims, good job intelligence, effective networking and an intelligent approach to employers. It can also help to acquire extra skills. It’s therefore vital to take full advantage of the resources and facilities at your disposal.

The categories for eligibility below are to provide information on what is available. Please speak with your Service Resettlement Advisor to find out what your entitlement is, which is dependent on time served.

With effect from 1st August 2020, Tri-Service Resettlement Policy has been changed by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), to allow all Service leavers regardless of reason for discharge to have access to the full resettlement entitlements they are eligible to receive. Service leavers who have served either 4-6 years or 6+ years by their date of discharge, will have access to their respective resettlement entitlement. This policy change will provide these Service leavers with an opportunity to undertake resettlement training to re-skill for a new career. JSP 534: The Tri-Service Resettlement and Employment Support Manual will be amended to allow those that are compulsory discharged to have access to full resettlement entitlements in line with time served with effect from 1st August 2020.

Success stories

“Believe in yourself and the talent you possess. Don’t take the first job opportunity that is thrown at you if it’s not 100 per cent right for you. Do not pigeon hole yourself upon your rank or age as a good senior manager will hire you upon your talent, experience and transferable skills to the company.”
