CMVES respects the diversity, skills and knowledge brought to civilian life by ex-military and emergency services personnel. We work with the veteran community, emergency services and families to empower and motivate all in reaching their full potential in work, education, business and the transition to civilian life.
This will be achieved by providing multi-layered educational options, leadership, employment and apprenticeship opportunities whilst underpining this through innovative, high quality research. This initiative will include national and international collaboration with academic partners, businesses, third sector, charities and the Armed Forces.
The key objective of Home Group's Ex Services/Veterans Accommodation service is to help former services personnel / veterans rebuild their lives through the provision of short-term accommodation and person centred support, with a view to helping service users move on and resettle in the community with a home and job.
Water and wastewater company United Utilities has an apprenticeship scheme that may appeal to those leaving the armed forces or emergency services and their dependents.
The NHS values the skills, courage and compassion that former service men and women bring to roles within the health service. So CMVES is working with Salford City College and the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust to find suitable candidates for a Healthcare Assistant pre-employment programme beginning March 2016.
