Career Transition Partnership to Conduct Second Employment Fair for Ex-Serving and Service Leavers in Belfast 2024

12 April 2024

The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is gearing up to host its second Employment Fair in Belfast, building upon the resounding success of last year’s event. Scheduled to take place on Thursday 16th May, the fair aims to bridge the gap between veterans, ex-military personnel, and service leavers, and prospective employers seeking to harness their unique skill sets and professionalism.

Service leavers bring to the table a wealth of experience cultivated in demanding and high-pressure environments, where they have developed their skills amidst adversity, often in life-or-death situations. Contrary to popular belief, military service encompasses a diverse range of roles spanning from logistics, engineering, and healthcare to policing, catering, and beyond.

Throughout their tenure, service personnel undergo rigorous training and gain accredited qualifications, NVQs, and apprenticeships tailored to their respective fields. Whether they’ve served for a brief stint or completed a full career spanning over two decades, service leavers offer a rich tapestry of expertise and leadership honed through real-world challenges.

Employers can expect service leavers to bring to the table a strong sense of discipline, professionalism, and pride in their work ethic. With a foundation built on teamwork, adaptability, and a solution-oriented mindset, veterans are primed to excel in dynamic work environments. The military ethos of “improvise, overcome, adapt” underscores their knack for innovation and initiative, making them invaluable assets to any organisation.

For those seeking employment opportunities or guidance, we urge you to mark your calendars and join us at the Employment Fair. Whether you’re a business looking to tap into this exceptional talent pool or an individual ready to embark on a new career journey, the fair promises to be a catalyst for meaningful connections and opportunities.
