The Forces Families Jobs website is not just there to get you your next job or training course, you can find volunteering opportunities too!

Take Allsports Coaches Coaching Academy (ACCA), for example – a small community interest company offering training to military community members to become coaches, enabling them to deliver sports, health, mental health and wellbeing solutions.

As a small start-up, there’s very limited funding, so volunteers are key to bringing vital skills to the business – and it uses FFJ to recruit.

ACCA’s Jim Prescott explains why: “FFJ is a simple and effective solution to advertise to the military community and the support from the team is second to none.”

When Jim was looking for some volunteer support to set up a social media presence for ACCA, we suggested advertising this need to military families. Sarah Johnson, from AFF’s FFJ team says: “We have such a diverse range of skills, qualifications and experience in our community – I knew that someone would jump at the chance to volunteer so they could fine tune their social media knowledge and gain some experience.”

Jim adds: “We had strong interest and found an exceptional candidate. I have no hesitation in recommending FFJ as a solution for anyone with roles to fill.” You can visit ACCA’s profile and more at
