Veterans hub

Community has a proud history of supporting veterans. Many of our members are veterans or reservists and we want to do what we can to support you as you make the transition from military to civilian life, at work and wherever else we can.

We recognise that one of the best ways we can support you to make the transition from military to civilian life is by supporting you to find a good quality job. People who serve in our armed forces have a number of skills that employers greatly value including; leadership, discipline, integrity and problem solving.

Yet communicating those skills to a civilian employer can be difficult. That’s where we come in. We can provide bespoke training and development opportunities to help you, from CV writing to interview skills. Read our guide to find out more.
