This week, we were delighted to be selected as a Finalist in the hotly contested category of Initiative of the Year at the Ex Forces in Business Awards. Congratulations to the winners – RBL Lifeworks. As a small company, we can’t compete with the big guns, but we have helped thousands of service leavers and veterans over the last 10 years and we hope to carry on doing so for the next 10 years and beyond.
We continue to be overwhelmed by your messages of support for the work we do. At FCVS, we truly appreciate not just the skills and experience you bring to the civilian workplace, but your amazing work ethic, dedication and commitment. It’s our mission to make that shine through when you present your CV to potential employers and also to help you get that all across in an interview in the most impactful way.
I started this business 10 years ago to help my ex-military friends; I come from a military family background and so I have a whole network of friends – some of whom are still in the military and others who moved into Civvy Street years ago across a variety of sectors, worldwide. What started out as me using my HR and other skills to help some mates, has blossomed into me being able to help many, many more people to understand their career direction, connect with employers, promote their capabilities through strong CVs and interview techniques. At FCVS, we believe the personal touch is best so we don’t have ‘clients’ – we have friends we just happen to do business with and it’s been great to follow peoples’ careers over the last 10 years, watch them grow and progress. Whatever happens, when you work with us, you become part of the family and we will be behind you all the way.
I am also blessed to be able to work with some wonderful partners such as #British Forces Resettlement Services, #Veterans Employment & Training Solutions, #SMS Training and many others who are all passionate about helping ex-military personnel to get where they want to be – FAST!
I absolutely love what I do!
There is nothing better than watching someone go from being unsure how to attack their career transition and lacking in confidence about approaching employers, to getting that job offer on the table.
