Recruitment campaigns in the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Defence, the Cabinet and the Home Office, including UK Border Force, are beginning to include an option for veterans that they wish to apply under the initiative. Any veteran who opts into the scheme and meets the minimum criteria required for a role will be guaranteed to move to the next stage of selection, such as an interview or online test.
The scheme is designed to encourage more veterans to join the Civil Service when they leave the Armed Forces, thereby ensuring that the Civil Service fully benefits from the diverse set of skills and talents in the Armed Forces Community. It will also boost the prospects of those who have served, helping them to make a successful transition to future employment.
