THE Career Transition Partnership (CTP) works with the MOD to support you and your soldier if you are leaving the Army.

If you’re living in Germany there’s a Regional Resettlement Centre in Herford, which supports the BFG community as well as those of you living in Brunssum and SHAPE.

The CTP website ( is the perfect place to start and includes information on UK jobs, so if you are trying to decide where to settle, it’s worth taking a look. Some CTP workshops, such as Business Start Up, are open to spouses.

Herford’s Resettlement Centre runs transition fairs providing opportunities for your soldier to meet employers, training providers, support organisations and industry specialists.

In the UK, there are regular transition fairs in garrison areas which are open to families.

For those of you thinking of making your home in Germany, there’s a CV-writing/living and working in Germany workshop in Herford with a specialist member of the team who links with German companies to help find jobs.

To help you with your transition to civvy street, MOD also provides housing and finance briefings which can be accessed at any time in a soldier’s career and are open to families. The next housing brief is on  8 October in Herford.
