Guaranteed Job Interview For Armed Force Leavers
Rochdale Council (Greater Manchester) has announced a new scheme that guarantees armed force leavers a guaranteed job interview for a position in the council. The move, one of the first of its kind in the UK, with Rochdale being the only local authority to approve such a scheme, is aimed at strengthening the council’s commitment to the Armed Forces.
If successful we could see schemes like this happen all over the UK. Many believe ex-service personnel are at a disadvantage in the job market, and schemes like this can increase ex-soldiers gain employment. This new scheme by Rochdale council may have come at a key time as the government announce 5000 redundancies across the Army.
Current or ex Armed Forces personnel can register for help by visiting http://www.rochdale.gov.uk/armedforces or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
