The Aim

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.

The Course

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.

Forward Assist

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.
