Support for our armed forces
Being part of a forces family myself, supporting the armed forces is at the core of everything I do. My company has social aims, as well as commercial. One of the main ones being to provide fully mobile and professional careers for spouses and service leavers. As a spouse of many years I understand firsthand the disadvantage this can create in your career. I designed my company model to help remove this. We do this via a comprehensive training package with support from an accredited training provider, in addition to a host of other benefits.
The business model has been tried, tested and developed over the years to account for deployments (both planned and last minute), going unaccompanied and remote postings etc. We also have specific HR policies in place for reservists. All our roles are flexible in work patterns and location, and fully transferable if you have to move. We would very much like to extend the invite to others to join our family.
Recruiting through FFJ
For us, the FFJ website is perfect as we are passionate about offering opportunities to the military community. We know the talent pool is out there, it’s just finding them! It gives us a great platform to scout you out.
A spouse’s view
Employee Anna Harrison says: “As a family, we endure long periods of separation, inconsistent work schedules that change as frequently as the wind and live miles away from family support. This makes it almost impossible to hold down a normal job. Being self-employed and part of Forces Family Finance means I can work around my children and my husband’s career and still be able to achieve my work and life goals, which are so important to me as a working mum.”
