Our Latest News, Events & Successes
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.
Forces CV & Career Services are committed to supporting people at all levels across the Armed Forces, now and in the future. If you need us, we are here. Just get in touch for a chat.
Forces CV & Career Services are absolutely delighted to have been selected as a finalist in the Ex Forces Business Awards due to take place on Wednesday at the O2 in London.
Thank you to all of our amazing clients, military contacts across the tri-services, strategic partners and everyone who has supported our journey over the last 10 years. It is an honour to support service leavers and veterans as they move throughout their careers. We look forward to helping people for the next 10 years and beyond.
During the pandemic, we have seen a massive shift onto online platforms for many things. Career fairs are no exception, with almost 80% of recruiters planning to leverage virtual strategies in the spring of 2021.
These events are a valuable part of your job search toolkit as they allow you to connect and network with potential employers and training providers in your industry. In turn, this helps hiring managers to find skilled individuals like you to fill important vacancies. Don’t take my word for it, according to SHRM, 330 people attended 15 virtual career fairs that they had organised, resulting in more than 50 interviews and 30 hires. Here are some key steps to help you get the most from a career fair:
Good luck at your virtual career fair and enjoy the experience!
