Services for Employers
Today’s armed forces are accustomed to operating in the most complex of environments, maximising the benefits of teamwork whilst harnessing cutting edge technology to its very limits. Service leavers have unrivaled experience and excellent personal qualities.
They have been tested in highly demanding and pressurised situations and are used to taking responsibility for their actions and getting things done first time. Service leavers are quick to learn, picking up new skills and adapting to new circumstances with ease. They are self-disciplined and motivated problem solvers who will get a task done, whatever it takes.
In addition to offering such professional and technical abilities, they are also skilled in planning and organising, teamwork, communication, man management and leadership, skills that have been honed in some of the toughest environments.
By offering employment opportunities to wounded, injured and sick personnel via CTP, not only gives you the satisfaction of supporting these ex military personnel but also can add some valuable advantages to your company.
