WOMEN VETERANS

AND SPOUSES

ONLINE JOBS FAIR

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 4th @1000hrs

This event is FREE for Woman Veterans & Spouses.

Ahead of our next Job Fair, hear from Rebecca as she speaks about transitioning and how the FTG were able to help her take that next step to ensure she would
Serve Well, Leave Well and Flourish!

Research shows that woman veterans often face more barriers to employment and a successful transition than male veterans, lets change that together!

WHY CHOOSE US?

Facilitated by the Forces Transition Group and The V Word, this special FTG Online Jobs Fair will connect you with veteran friendly employers that understand the intrinsic needs of women veterans and military spouses. Offering flexible and WFH positions, putting emphasis on the value of the transferable skills that female veterans bring to any workforce and not the location or hours of work.

Did You Know, Women Veterans…

\

ARE LESS LIKELY TO SELF-IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS VETERANS

\

ARE LESS LIKELY TO USE VETERAN SUPPORT, BOTH GOVERNMENT AND WITHIN THE CHARITY SECTOR (PARTLY BECAUSE OF THE ABOVE)

\

HAVE HIGHER SUPPORT NEEDS THAN THEIR MALE COUNTERPARTS TO OVERCOME BARRIERS TO EMPLOYMENT SUCH AS CHILD CARE & AFTER-SCHOOL CARE

\

OFTEN LEAVE THE SERVICE & BECOME MILITARY SPOUSES… THUS ENCOUNTERING THE ISSUES THAT COME WITH THAT

\

FIND EMPLOYERS ARE LESS UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR MILITARY SERVICE AND HAVE A LACK OF RECOGNITION FOR THEIR ABILITIES AND TRANSFERABLE SKILLS

Meet Ria

Hello there! I’m Ria, I served 12 years in the Royal Air Force and I’m 5 years out, still trying to navigate the unforgiving territory and minefields known as ‘civvy street’ and ‘parenthood’!

I founded The V Word as an outlet and a mission to share the innermost workings of my dark and twisted mind (I feel I should insert a pre-emptive apology right about here.. Soz!). Also in the hope of creating a platform for our hidden community, veterans with vajayjays, to start talking.   

Women have been serving in the military for over 100 years, lets’s take heed of our ancestors set fire to our bras, and make some noise! (Not the expensive ones though and please do ensure that all health and safety precautions are utilised!)
