BT, TXMRecruit and GoodPeople have teamed up to launch and scale Transition Force, a package of opportunities and a talent platform that will support ex-service men and women with their transition into civilian life.
The vision of Transition Force is to mobilise the business community to provide a complete career service for ex-service men and women. This service includes support to become ‘job ready’ through work inspiration and work experience, a network of former military professionals who offer their time to volunteer as mentors/buddies, and a growing pool of jobs that ex-service men and women can access via an online talent platform.
Transition Force is based on the experience of pilot programmes within BT that led to the appointment of 70 former soldiers to the organisation and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the ex-service men and women participating. Transition Force is about spreading the impact and learning that has come out of these pilot programmes by working with partner organisations and their supply chains to scale the offer nationwide.
