Forces Families Jobs is the go-to place for training and employment for family members of currently serving UK military personnel. You can hear all three Families Federations talk about the benefits ofthis free one-stop-shop for job vacancies and training opportunities.

The RAF Families Federation formally partnered with the Naval and Army Families Federations to launch ‘Forces Families Jobs’ in September 2019. This ground-breaking website is completely free to use and links leading employers who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and wish to support forces families by offering flexible jobs and/or training, to military family members who are looking for work.

There are over 3,500 jobs now advertised from world leading employers including Microsoft, Morrisons, the Scottish Government and a vast range of small and medium sized businesses. This project was supported by Defence Relationship Management, and co-funded by a range of supporters, including the RAF Association.

Jobs are added daily and so if you don’t immediately see what you are looking for then it may be worth registering to receive alerts for the right role, when it comes along.

Defence Relationship Management (DRM) are running a series of Being Forces Friendly Podcasts – this particular programme being on Forces Families Jobs:
