A NEW company is aiming to transform the provision of careers and business support for the Armed Forces community.
The Forces Enterprise Network Hub (Fen Hub) will provide the skills, resources and practical tools needed to be successful in different routes to employment, such as starting and maintaining a business or securing employment.
Creators The Forces Enterprise Network, Recruit for Spouses and Evolution Forces Families are bringing their experience in recruitment and knowledge of financial services to deliver training programmes and business networking to the Forces community, making a difference to Service families.
Christine Dedman, director at Forces Enterprise Network, said: “Our newly established organisation is a natural fit.
“Together we can provide extended services to the whole Armed Forces community drawing on our individual strengths and in-depth understanding of the defence community in which we operate.”
Heledd Kendrick, CEO at Recruit for Spouses, added: “No military spouse should have their career subjugated because of their attachment to the Armed Forces.”
Fen Hub offers extended member services via online business support, downloadable guides on a range of employment and self-employment topics, mentoring, seminars and representation.
A network of business support hubs across the UK’s MOD bases, British Forces Germany, Belgium and Cyprus has strengthened Fen Hub’s reach and encourages peer supervision, creating a unique business network of entrepreneurs from a previously undervalued, high-quality resource of professionals from the Armed Forces community.
