National Employment Online Careers Fair went live yesterday and will remain open until Thursday 7 May 2020.
Location: Online-register here
By registering, you will be able to create an online career profile and upload your CV(s) and links to your professional social media. It also allows people to engage with companies, no matter their location or situation. From Cyprus to The Falklands people will be able to engage with companies whenever or wherever they need to.
The Armed Forces Community can access in-house information from these companies, even when there isn’t a person to engage with, in real time. This means, you view their videos and get the same value of information ‘on-demand’.
The virtual event connects the Armed Forces Community with online exhibitors, all in one virtual place.
- social media channels
- downloadable company information
- messaging system
- viewing live and on demand webcasts
Essentially, it brings together employers, training providers, and career advice for the Armed Forces Community.
Pathfinder International will be hosting three separate Armed Forces and Veterans Resettlement Expo’s throughout 2019. The first will be held at Hampden Park Glasgow on 14 March.
This event is FREE for all attendees, please see Pathfinder International for ticket information.
Two of Scotland’s charities Age Scotland and Housing Options Scotland have worked together and launched a housing advice guide for veterans in Scotland.
The Housing for Older Veterans in Scotland advice guide is for any military veteran age 65 and older who has completed at least one day’s Regular or Reserve service in HM Forces.
Military veterans can request free copy of the guide from the Age Scotland helpline – 0800 12 44 222.
For more information on the guide see the Age Scotland website or the Housing Options Scotland website.
Last Friday, members of the Armed Forces and Veterans Champions gathered at the Webster Theatre in Arbroath where Angus Provost Councillor Ronnie Proctor MBE, signed the Armed Forces Covenant for the council. Major General Bob Bruce CBE DSO signed the agreement for the Armed Forces.

All our contacts and relevant information about what support is available for veterans and their families is in one convenient place on our website. We have information about housing, benefits, health and much more, including links to voluntary organisations who offer support.
