SaluteMyJob has been awarded a £40,000 grant by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. This grant will help improve the competitiveness of 350 ex-Army jobseekers when applying for jobs in the private, public and third sectors.

SaluteMyJob provide a comprehensive employment support service, delivered by professional consultants, who have knowledge and experience in both the Armed Forces and commercial recruitment. Alongside offering careers and CV advice, our grant allows SaluteMyJob to offer jobseekers unique access to tools routinely use by employers, such as online assessments and video interviewing tools.

Managing Director of SaluteMyJob, Andrew Jackson, explained: “In addition to providing professional advice and employment support, the ABF The Soldiers’ Charity grant allows us to increase the job-relevant training opportunities available to ex-military people, targeting known skills shortages, such as cyber security. For example, SaluteMyJob, in partnership with IBM, The Corsham Institute, and employers, trains ex-military jobseekers – at no cost to them – on IBM’s data analysis and cyber tools.”

Brigadier (Ret’d) Robin Bacon, Chief of Staff at ABF The Soldiers’ Charity commented: “The Soldiers’ Charity is here to help soldiers and veterans for life, with genuine need, not want, being our guiding principle. SaluteMyJob provides a great platform for those who need employment guidance, which the Charity feels is vital to support.”
