Ex-MilitaryCareers.com was launched in 2010, initially on social media, because we wanted to help the process of transition and resettlement for ex-military personnel and we realised that the process was often far from smooth and straightforward.
We established our Jobs & Training Board, free to use for the ex-military, in 2013.
Our job search engine – which has over 600 registered businesses and 25,000+ registered candidates – has now been upgraded using industry leading technology to guarantee that Ex-MilitaryCareers.com is the most effective and cutting-edge online recruitment solution for our members.
Ex-military men and women, or personnel looking to leave the military, register free with us and can then search through an extensive database of desirable career opportunities, and apply directly to our business clients.
We operate as a social enterprise, and provide a foundation mentorship platform. Still in its early stage of development, here to support ex-service men and women with mentoring, education and career expenses as you begin your journey to establish a civilian career. We work with organisations committed to employing ex-military men and women and who see them as highly valuable assets to their business.
E-MC provides excellent opportunities, from boutique agencies to FTSE 250 companies, below are some of our key industry sectors.
Each year thousands of skilled men and women leave the forces. These leavers not only have many valuable transferable skills but they also have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts quickly, and to adapt effortlessly.
Since inception, we have assisted businesses to hire top ex-military talent and have also assisted in consultancy, sustainability & social enterprise, mentorship, recruitment & CSR based projects.
For businesses engaging with E-MC, we have the best pool of relevant talent for their business requirements. We also offer you a strong social media platform: at Ex-Military Careers we are proud of the breadth and vitality of our social media presence and our highly engaged audience of men and women.
Some notable achievements to date are:
In 2014, Ex-MilitaryCareers.com were invited to Buckingham Palace for a reception hosted by the Queen, Prince William and Prince Harry, to thank organisations like us for our support and welfare of those who have served our country.
We are also regularly invited to attend government "round table" veteran discussions at Westminster – providing insight into veteran employment sustainability.
Above and beyond anything else we started Ex-Military Careers with a desire to make a difference, a REAL difference! We wanted to give back to our Ex-Forces men and women and the only way we could think of achieving this was to become a Social Enterprise.
What is a Social Enterprise?
“A Social Enterprise is a business that trades to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment. The business makes its money from selling goods and services in the open market but reinvests its profits back into the business or the local community. So, the business profits, society profits.”
To become a Social Enterprise, businesses must have a clear social and/or environmental mission, set out in their governing documents.
We are proud of our Social Enterprise status. We feel it reflects our integrity of purpose and demonstrates our commitment to our ex-military men and women.
We are here to serve you as you have served your country.
