The lifeworks Journey
Training and employment
Many ex-forces personnel struggle to re-adjust to life outside of the military, facing long spells out of work and unsure where to turn for support. Issues including housing, ill-health, disability and low confidence can all impact on their job search and, although support is available for those leaving the services, not all service men and women know where to find it, resulting in difficulties later in life. This is where Lifeworks can help.
Lifeworks is part of Royal British Legion Industries – a charity with over 100 years of experience in helping veterans and their families.
What is Lifeworks
Our courses equip veterans and serving Armed Forces’ family members with the tools needed to achieve a career outside the framework of the military. From training courses and career advice to support with employment pathways and finding a job, we aim to prepare members with the skills needed to achieve their goals in the civilian job market, find additional training within their desired career, or give help and support to land the perfect role for them.
Who is Lifeworks For?
No matter the military affiliation or current circumstances, whether you have served in the Army, Navy or RAF, or are a family member of those currently serving, we’re here to help you reach your career goals.
Our friendly team would love to hear from you and help you on your journey, whether you’re calling with regards to your personal goals, or if you have a family member who could benefit from chatting to one of our team, use our contact form and we will reach out with more information.
How we help veterans and families
With no cost attached, our 4–5 day courses are held both across the country and virtually, ensuring our skills and expertise reach every corner of the UK. Lifeworks has a team of highly skilled support staff, assessors, and trainers with many years of experience in helping those with close links to the Armed Forces back into employment or training.
Our aim is to ensure our attendees are given the tools needed to achieve an employment outcome that’s right for them; developing self-confidence, new skills and allowing participants to move forward with their career ambitions in a positive way. We aim to reduce the amount of unemployed ex-service men and women by giving them the support they need to find a job they’re confident in.
After attending a course, the Lifeworks team are still here to support. We’ll be in contact at regular intervals and available to help in any way we can. Whether it’s an informal chat to learn about your progress, or if you need a hand with a job application, we remain on-hand to help.
Hundreds of ex-service personnel have attended Lifeworks courses to date with 76% of course attendees finding work, education or volunteering within the first 6 months of attending, with that number rising to 83% within the first 12 months.
Lifeworks has a track record of positive change within the military service community and continues to provide unwavering support to those who need it.
