A few words from FTG Partners…

Colas Rail

“Colas Rail have attended a number of Job Fairs to support the FTG and importantly to support the amazing men and women of or Armed Forces. We have had an amazing response following the job fairs, with well over 150 potential candidates getting in touch. This has resulted in interviews and offers of employment. Without the amazing work of the Forces Transition Group we would have missed the opportunity to meet and interview some amazing people. Colas Rail is proud to support our Armed Forces and proud to support Forces Transition Group.”

– Christopher PUGH | Senior Trainer/Assessor – Services Colas Rail


“It’s safe to say it was a resounding success and all of the Biffa team who attended had a great day meeting the candidates and seeing the process in action.

We’ve had some amazing levels of feedback from candidates who may never have considered their future in the circular economy.

I wanted to thank you personally, you could see the level of thought and effort that had been put into the planning and execution of the day. Amazing, you should be extremely proud of the work you’re doing for service leavers.”

Damien O’Neill MIoL TMIET | Group Head of Engineering – Biffa

Recruit for Spouses

“The  FTG jobs fairs are a great way to get your what your company is about to the huge numbers of candidates who trust and attend online. No expensive train fairs to events where there are no roles to apply for, candidates get to see who is out there to support them and the companies involved all work collaboratively on a shared goal, to support the military and police forces community with advice, jobs and support. If you are a candidate, you will find an extensive network here within FTG from CV advice to family support and how to ask for feedback and if you are a company, you will guarantee a return with the numbers who attend without the costs of physical jobs fairs. Simple but very effective”

– Cerise Upham | Commercial Director Recruit for Spouses

Symposium IT

“I was fortunate enough to participate in The Forces Transition Group’s Online Job Fair, and I must say it was a truly exceptional event. The team at FTG did a fantastic job organising and coordinating the fair, providing job seekers with an excellent opportunity to connect with potential employers. As an employer, we were delighted to engage with so many talented and motivated individuals, including ex-police personnel who brought a wealth of valuable experience and skills to the table. The event was a great success, and we are grateful to have been a part of it. We look forward to continuing our partnership with The Forces Transition Group and supporting veterans in their transition to civilian life. Thanks to the FTG team for their hard work and dedication!”

– Joshua Ashton | Director Symposium IT

FAQs for Exhibitors

What is the best way to present on an FTG Online Job Fair?

Working with our partners over the years of producing the FTG Online Job Fairs we’ve found that exmployers who use a 15% about company, 70% about jobs and salary with 15% for engagment Q&A have seen a higher number of quality applications and enquiries.

I've never presented before, what should I do?

We can help you with a 1-2-1 session where we talk you through the best way to present your company with the maximum engagement. Our presenters use a mixture of powerpoint presentation and speaking directly to the audience to get the best from the day.

Why should we hire from ex-forces and blue light candidates?

You should consider hiring ex-service and blue light candidates for your business due to the invaluable skills and qualities they bring to the table. These individuals have undergone rigorous training in disciplined environments, fostering strong work ethics, adaptability, and leadership capabilities.

Moreover, their experiences in high-pressure situations make them adept at problem-solving and decision-making. By welcoming ex-service and blue light candidates into their workforce, employers not only honour their commitment to public service but also gain employees who are dedicated, resilient, and capable of contributing positively to the company’s growth and success.

What kind of candidates are available via the FTG Online Job Fairs?

We provides access to ex-military personnel, blue light professionals, forces leavers, and their spouses for companies looking to hire. The candidates available through our services bring an array of exceptional qualities and skills. Their backgrounds in disciplined settings instil strong work ethics, adaptability, and leadership capabilities. Having navigated high-pressure scenarios, they possess well-honed problem-solving and decision-making skills. Opting to hire from our candidate pool enables employers to onboard dedicated, resilient individuals with a proven commitment to public service.

Can I book more than 4 places within a 12 month period?

Not at the moment – it’s imperative that we keep it fresh for our audience and if they see the same exhibitors all the time they will not be encouraged to return. The more audience we have, the better the result will be for you.

Do I have to book a sponsorship package to be able to book an exhibitor place?

No – Although we would love you to because the funds we raise here allow us to continue to offer great support, free of charge, to all forces personnel. In turn, you also get some great benefits and a discount off your exhibitor fee.

Do I have to guarantee an interview to any interested Forces Leavers?

Yes – but you can do a short initial ‘virtual’ interview to see if any candidate will be the right fit. The important thing here is not to make a first impression based on their CV.
