Civilian Work Attachments

Opportunities for military service leavers

We’re excited to offer Civilian Work Attachments during your resettlement period.

We are working with the Career Transition Partnership, an organisation that supports people leaving the Armed Forces, to offer the area’s veterans a work placement to give them experience in the civilian job market.

As service leavers, you have the skills, knowledge and experience to shape and deliver the best public services for everyone who lives, works or visits North East Lincolnshire.

Martin said: “My colleagues have been so friendly. I’m used to that in the military, but this was next-level friendly.

“Everyone has been approachable too. I’ve been shadowing people and they’ve gone above and beyond to give me an insight into what they do, even eating into their own time to help. It’s been a nice refreshing change and I’m grateful for the way I’ve been welcomed.

“Would I work here? Yes, definitely. I’m keen on staying in touch if something suitable comes up.”
