U.K. Career Transition Partnership

Integrating & Including

Serving those who served queen & country

Every year, around 15,000 men and women leave active duty in the U.K.’s Royal Navy, Army, Air Force and Marines. They have skills, but not always certifications. They’ve traveled the world, but lack business connections. And they have the drive and leadership qualities that employers crave—but often lack the context to convey this effectively on a CV or in an interview. Over the last decade, ManpowerGroup’s Career Transition Partnership has helped more than 180,000 U.K. veterans find sustainable employment.

“Service personnel have a great range of qualities and skills that are readily transferable and in demand.” — Group Captain Keith Spencer, Assistant Head of Resettlement, MOD

Working with the Ministry of Defence, ManpowerGroup’s Career Transition Partnership (CTP) helps Service leavers build the skills and networks they need to successfully transition to civilian work. Through programs like job fairs, workshops, vocational training and live online networking events, we’ve placed 90% of all participants within six months of leaving the service.

The gold standard for serving veterans.

The CTP is now expanding its successful approach to include military spouses and unemployed reservists. And in 2017, ManpowerGroup received a Gold Award as part of the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme—the highest honor available, and issued to just 33 employers this year.

“Before the CTP workshop, I had never put together a CV before so I was nervous. The workshops gave me the knowledge and confidence that I could leave the military and succeed in the civilian world.” — Ex-RAF Senior Aircraftsman Jonathan Cheeseman, now Resourcing and Talent Development Manager with Colas Ltd.
