East Resettlement Magazine - Autumn 2018 Issue

Welcome to the Autumn 2018 issue of Easy Resettlement magazine.

In this issue we are very pleased to be able to promote and recognise the 51 companies that have achieved a Gold Award as part of the MOD's Employer Recognition Scheme Award. Now in its fifth year The 'Gold Awards' are for businesses and organisations that have shown outstanding support for the military community and the Armed Forces Covenant. These include businesses, charities and public sector bodies. Easy Resettlement has been featuring various winners over the years, to highlight the achievements of these companies and to encourage service leavers to be positive about their resettlement process.

Many companies attend such events as the CTP employment fairs and actively look to recruit service leavers and veterans because of your very transferable skills you have picked up whilst in service. Our Winter issue will look back at some of the previous Gold Award winners as well as including information on some of the new winners of this coveted award.



Our now regular guest contributor Lt Gen Richard Nugee CVO CBE, chief of Defence People, highlights the work that the Defence Relationship Management Team (DRM) do in working with the winners of the Gold Awards and the employer initiatives such as the Barclays AFTER programme who were one of the first Gold Award winners back in 2014.
In addition to the employment opportunities that we include in each issue, we have information from The CTP about approaching the civilian job market with confidence, as well as making the most from your resettlement process. In each issue we include information from elcas about your funded training and entitlements.

We have a feature on franchising in association with The British Franchise Association known as the BFA, highlighting the support and advice franchises offer to franchisees, and the likelihood of succeeding with that added help, support and advice offered from the years of knowledge and proven business models when joining a franchise.

As always we include information from the sponsor of our magazine, SSAFA is the oldest forces charity formed in 1885. They share their information and case studies with the magazine, raising awareness of how they can help and assist service leavers, veterans and their families. As well as the other forces charities we work with including ABF The Soldiers Charity, The Royal British Legion and Haig Housing.

We mark the 100th year since the end of the First World War with Haig Housing who are looking to recruit 100 Veterans and serving personnel to walk 100 miles from Ypres to the Cenotaph.
