Are you about to leave the Royal Navy, Regular Army or Royal Air Force?A member of the Reserve Forces? Ex-Service/ A Veteran? A Spouse/Civil partner of someone who is? Looking to build your professional network? Get some career inspiration?
Forces & Business Connect aims to provide members of the Armed Forces community with an opportunity to network and have honest conversations with key people in local businesses, who can support them as they explore their next career steps. This FREE event is for people preparing to leave the regular Forces, ex-services/veterans, Reservists, and their spouses and Civil partners. The event is open to all ranks and rates. Those attending will have the opportunity to speed date with local business leaders and executives, to gain valuable insight into functional areas of business. This is not a recruitment event, the focus is on building connections without commercial expectation. We hope to make this a monthly event.
The event will take place 1830-2030, Tuesday 17th April, at the Royal Maritime Club.
This event has been developed in partnership with Shapping Portsmouth and The List.
Tom Worley said 'when I left Royal Navy, I found work quickly. Finding my next career was harder. I used all the support available. The List was really useful and that's why I wanted to set something similar up in Portsmouth'.
Caroline Hopper (PCC) said 'Members of the Armed Forces community bring so much to the workplace. We want to provide opportunities for them to consider career opportunities that match their values and skills'.
