Many service leavers need help understanding the civilian employment market. Those who have never held a job outside the armed forces lack the experience required to find a job and to understand what transferable skills they have. Without our help, many would struggle.
Service leavers are eligible for Career Transition Partnership (CTP) support from two years before discharge to two years after discharge. RFEA provides the employment service within the CTP for all service leavers.
Since 2011, RFEA has provided expert support to wounded, injured and sick service leavers who, due to the nature of their injuries, face significant barriers. Initially delivered through the Recovery Careers Service, this service has been funded by the MoD as part of the CTP since 2015. RFEA's CTP Assist team is made up of experienced Specialist Employment Consultants who meet the vocational and career needs of the individuals it supports.
The Future Horizons Programme was developed by RFEA in response to the need to improve resettlement provision for Early Service Leavers who were not eligible for CTP support before 2015. In 2015 the MoD recognised this need and funded the programme as part of the CTP Contract. CTP Future Horizons continues to be delivered by RFEA.
RFEA's CTP Employer Engagement Team works in partnership with employers to generate appropriate and quality job vacancies, which are then listed on RightJob, a jobs board available exclusively to ex-military personnel. Our Central Support Team tracks and matches all of our clients, providing them with a single point of contact to stay in touch with throughout their transition and employment support by phone.
